Thank Goodness, Mary Mothers Our Kids

I have failed.

I did not mother perfectly.

My mother did not mother perfectly

Nor did her mother

It is an ancestral tragedy

piercing my heart with pain

It is not merely an intellectual awareness  of my weaknesses

It is more than surface hurt feelings

It is a deep spiritual wound,

A core brokenness

Thank God for Jesus

Thank the Lord that Mary can mother our children, ourselves and OUR mothers

Restoring our mothering heart

Till it is pulsating and radiating love

connected to the source of all Love
