DAY 131: RIFFING ON MOTHER’S DAY AND RUNNING ON EMPTY!

  1. My mother wore all yellow today from head to toe. Her shoes were yellow patent leather. Most people wouldn’t be able to pull it off, yet she did it with such distinctive aplomb, I was giddy all over again to know her.
  2. I kept remembering all of the young mothers at the Church service at Village Kwaco in Haiti last week. So beautiful, some of them breast feeding other mother’s  kids.
  3. When I did my Mission statement this morning at Church I concluded with the statement: “Not only do the Haitian people need us, but we also and equally need the Haitian people.” Felt like it was a good moment for me.
  4. My kids dressed up, bought cards for my mom and I, were beyond the best. I love them. I thank God for them.
  5.  I had tea with my ex-husband at the end of the day today and when he wished me a Happy Mother’s Day I told him I wouldn’t be one without him.
  6. The Orphans at the Orphanage at the Haitian Christian Mission, such sweet sweet kids had a sign inside the orphanage that said: Transform Life.
  7. I’m wondering how some of those kids we took care of last week are doing……
  8. Everyone is a mother. I honestly and truly believe this.
  9. At one point, during our walk in Jockey Hollow, my mother turned to me and told me a really poignant story about her mother, who, on a purely superficial level would not go down in the annals of history as a good and giving mother.
  10.  When I arrived home tonight at 10:30, I was spent, emotionally overwhelmed and grateful that I had been mothered by my friend Marky Mark. Such a sweet listener.
  11. Balance is so important.
  12. Life can be tender and sometimes bittersweet, I am grateful to be able to be a mother, to have been mothered, to know mothers and to move myself forward in deep appreciation for all that has been; anticipating everything to come.

Exhale. Big Day!!!

About livebig365

Join me as I dive in to the deep end of the pool and challenge myself to live big and love big. What does that mean? In 2012 , I accepted the invitation to push myself beyond my comfort zone, at least once a day, and engaged and responded to my life, or a given situation in my life, in a way that would normally scare the hell out of me. Why did I do it it? Because it was time time to begin, and I was ready! Each day brought a new revelation, lesson, challenge, encounter, a teaching moment, that revealed to me that living big and loving big are uniquely interconnected. Welcome 2013, the year of lovebig 365. Each post was an expression of love experienced, witnessed, inspired, manifested. It didn't always make sense in the moment, and yet its sheer mystery hopefully evoked a beautiful affirmation of life and all of its shimmery brightness; broken up, lovely to behold, tender and full of purpose. 2014, jagged, bumpy, disjointed posts. 2015, silence, and plenty of growth within that silence. Manifesting 2016: The creation of a gathering place for gratitude. Join in the wavering, audacious, unequivocal fun. 2017: Reflection 2018: POWER, MAGIC, TRANSFORMATION
