A Cellular Circle of Life …
I am awake, I am alive and this morning I am smiling at the utter beauty that is the circle of life. To explain …
Last night, a chance to sit with grandbabies as Mama and Daddy had a rare night out. I tucked them into bed, gave them sweet kisses, and revelled in the “I love you’s”. As I returned to the livingroom of my daughter’s home, the nightly routine completed, I smiled as I thought of her, my Mom now long gone.
In that moment, as I enjoyed the utter contentment of the two little souls in their respective bedrooms, I knew this was exactly how she felt each time she tucked my littles into bed, on one of my rare nights out.
In that moment, I felt no sadness, no regret, no longing for one more chat with her, just some deep cellular connection as if I could feel her inside me, feel her joy, feel her utter contentment of the two little souls in their respective bedrooms so long ago.
So thank you Mom, for being the Mom and Gramma you were, for you helped me become the Mom and Gramma I am. We are so totally different in so many ways but the same in many others, and authentic in both and that is a lesson worth replicating.
It is a beautiful day in the circle, my friend, and I pray you feel the exact same way.
I love you!
