Motherhood is a happy place to be in. With two college girls I like that I am able to continue working on being the kind of person I truly want to be. It shows in the quality of my relationship with the girls. The bond is tight, the lines of communication are open and there are no secrets to hide. It’s a joyous moment for everyone and that’s all the really matters at present.
There is trust and in trust comes peace. There is no better gift to receive on Mother’s day than this gift of reassurance that I have with my girls. The load I carry is light, making it easy for me to pass it on to someone else who needs it. I think that this process had a lot to do with forgiveness. It’s a gift that starts with oneself. You can’t forgive someone else unless you forgive yourself.
I am happy to be right on target at mid life. I have less to worry about and I am able to let go and trust that everything will be fine. I can sit still and knit in peace. I can sleep longer hours and wake up feeling fully rested.
Most of all, I can increase my pace when running without worrying about leaving anyone behind.
