A friend of mine, Tanya Brunello, wrote this Mother’s Day article and post it on Facebook. I thought it was beautiful and should be shared, and I asked her permission to share it on my blog. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
My Reflection on Mother’s Day.
I am saying what ….. There are mothers and mothers.
And children and children…
And there are relationships and relationships.
And I find it curious how the same mother can have a relationship with one child and a very different one with another, don’t you think?
If I asked my sister what our mom was to her, I know her answer would be completely different.
And if I asked her to describe her, her words would be different from what I would use, yet we are talking about the same person!
I would have been pissed off at one point.
I would have argued that my vision was right because I knew I was clear and my truth was unique and irrefutable.
Over the years, I’ve realized that the things we experience are actually subjective, and the meaning we give is personal.
And as much as one can change their idea over the years, what everyone thinks is reality because it’s true for that person.
And no one has the right to tell someone else how they should feel, let alone to question their life.
What you believe becomes your reality.
I had a wonderful mother who went to heaven when I was very young to protect me better from above.
This is my reality.
Wishes to all the mothers.
To the ones in heaven.
To the ones in the ground.
To the one next door.
To the far and away.
Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us, Tanya. Until next time, stay safe, and keep the faith.
