  • Mother's Day-- a little tidbit I found on Diaspora

    From Khelair@VERT/TINFOIL to All on Sun May 10 21:23:52 2015
    Just thought I'd share this with y'all. A little bit about Mother's Day from someone I follow on Diaspora:

    Chris McAllister - about 4 hours ago - 1 Reshare
    On this mother's day, I want to take a moment to say something to those whose mothers are not longer with them.

    Please know that your mother is still very much on this earth. Your deepest character has its roots literally within her body. You grew out of her; you are her living legacy. All of those things that you love to remember about her, those are the things that you also love to live -- or at the very least strive to live. Your love of those things are because she taught them to you, weaving them into your very being.

    Your essence is her magic, and that magic is alive.

    Did you learn to weep at the sunset because she taught you what real beauty is? When you weep sublimely at that beauty, she weeps too, because that is her living in this world through you. She gave that part of herself to you.

    Bless you for keeping her joy a true and tangible thing in this world.

    She's not gone. She's here when you weep at beauty or kindness or whatever. She's here, always. And when your child weeps at the sunset because you were able to pass on that part of her through yourself, she'll be alive after you're gone, too.

    Happy Mother's Day, everybody, and carry your mother's light for as long as you can.

    Thank you for this. I believe I gave all my children this AND a conscience.
