  A Mother’s Thoughts.

I am so very lucky..  Having two Wonderful Children.. And had such lovely Gifts today.. The best Gifts being that of my kids..

I try to be a good mum. My two children having left the nest a while ago.. I try not to ruffle their feathers keeping out of their hair, but letting them know I am always here if they should need me.. And I go visit every couple of weeks or so, and know how I’m so lucky that they live close by.

I sent up a Mother’s Day thought today to my own Mother, who passed a few years ago now.. And I think of all the wasted years we had, when she stopped talking to me.. Despite repeated efforts to mend the rift, I gave up in the end.. So sad really as she missed out so much on her grandkids, and I never stopped them either from seeing her, they just made up their own minds to stop going as she posioned their minds against me and their Dad and Granddad.. such was her bitterness..

It struck me.. how many people waste so much precious time wrapped up in bitterness, How when couple’s divorce and parents ask children to take sides, or cloud their minds with bitter vengeful words.

My own children made up their own minds about their Gran and Grandad.. Children are very astute when discerning faults from their parents.. I know, I grew up in very turbulent circumstances of parents who had violent rages of which we as children would get caught up in and told to take sides..Or were told to say this or that and say nothing..or else! 

We as Mothers try our best for our children, we can lead them to water, but we can’t make them drink.. And for a time when my own daughter was a teenager, I thought I was repeating the same pattern as my Mother and I had when I was a teenager, arguing. Laying down ground rules.. Nothing seemed to work.. Until one day I said ok ‘I let go’.. and in letting go of the reigns I let my daughter find her own direction.. And if that meant making her own mistakes then so be it.. Luckily she turned a corner, and came back onto the path and I am such a proud Mother today of both my children.

Sometimes learning to love is learning to let go.. It’s a bitter pill to swallow, but one that at times is needed in order for healing to take place.. I have read some recent Blogs of late upon letting go..

I spent so many years feeling Guilt for my Mother, thinking I should have tried harder or changed her. But each of us needed to experience those lessons about Love along our pathway in life.. My Mother could never ‘Give’ of herself, she was a taker, very selfish, and her bitterness was etched in her voice and face of how life had dealt her this bad deal..

When in fact we are the ones that hold the pack of cards, and it’s up to us as individuals as how we play them..

I wish all of you Mum’s out there a Great Mothers Day what’s left of it..

 And hope that your cards come up Trumps!… In all you do..

    Such wonderful ways you can express my dear. This post you graciously touched on many points we mothers face. We try so hard not to do the things we didn\’t like our own mother\’s doings. To hope we get enlightened somehow when solving the problems that arise and the awful letting go, much less hurtful. Our children always need us through their lives. It changes with stages of different needs. Have a wonderful day and enjoy your precious children. They are wonderful, as they reflect you a great Mom!

    Great blog Dreamcatcher. I guess we all need to make our own lessons in life, letting go is one of them and letting our children make their own decisions, whether that be what we want or not, it is ultimately up to them. I am sorry to hear you had an astranged relationship with your mum, that must have been difficult. One thing I am so dearly blessed with is a wonderful family. We may not see each other much but I always know I can count on my mom and dad! We all live so far apart, but we still try to be a close family, my siblings and myself. I just hope that one day, my boys will feel the same way, that they can always come here, with open arms, that they enjoy coming home to visit and we have the type of relationship as I do with my parents and siblings. It is hard letting go and letting them fall and make their own path in life, sometimes I just want to pick them up, even though I can\’t. I will always be there for my children and accept what I have to and hopefully they turn out well!Take careBarbie

    Actually with letting our kids go and make the own choices and own mistakes. I\’m there with my son now. I realize I have to let go of the reins a wee bit more and let him be more independent. Hugs Lady Jude

    Sue, the lesson here is a poignant one, my sweet friend. Indeed, the lesson of letting go is a tough one, regardless of whether we are letting go of our children or our pasts.

    You and your mother both needed the rocks in the path. They let you recognize when your path was smooth ever after. It also allowed you the wisdom to see what to do with your own children.

    This is a lovely tribute to Mother’s Day. Remembering what our mothers taught us, whether helpful or painful or merely what not to do, is part of the celebration.

    Your love for her is obvious. May you continue to find peace and healing.
    Much love, my dear friend,

Each of us, carries within us the capacity to change the world in small ways for better or worse. Everything we do and think affects the people in our lives, and their reactions in turn affect others As the effect of a seemingly insignificant word passes from person to person, its impact grows and can become a source of great joy, inspiration, anxiety, or pain. Your thoughts and actions are like stones dropped into still waters, causing ripples to spread and expand as they move outward.. I hope that I can send a few ripples out via the web of life, as we each of us weave the threads together... Welcome to my Sanctuary of Peace and Love... May we each spread our Lights around our World....Sue Dreamwalker
