The Wisdom Of Mothers


Let new light shine insight into the role of mothers.

Raising children is definitely not a default chore for women who were not successful in the world of business, power and wealth.

Exactly how society forms the next generation will directly influence the kind of society that they turn create. Do we want a world focused only on the ruthless accumulation of wealth? Are we  creating a race of humans who are becoming increasingly shallow, cold and cynical about relationships, family and love? I hope not.  St. Paul tells us that everything will pass away, except Love.

Tears

Painful regret

for this hectic

scrambling after

while pushing

the wisdom of mothers

to the fringes of influence.

Joyful hope

that mothers

will reveal

their unique

to a jaded

cynical

world

a world that has forgotten

that all is fleeting

except Love.

  3. It is very true that even if you are a stay at home mom you can push your children away. I did not grow up with a mother who was present to me and that has had implication in my life in so many ways. The battle for me is to throw off the things I have learned and be more to my daughter than my mom was to me. I do fall short in many ways but when I do make mistakes I am honest with my daughter. Nothing like showing humility towards your children.

    1. VERY insightful and wise. We gain our children’s respect when we can really ask forgiveness with humility. It is hard to give what we have not received; we can only ask Love to heal and fill the gaps and spaces in our background, our characters and our hearts. He will!
