Is it Mother’s Day, Mothering Sunday or Child’s Day today?

HAPPY CHILD’S DAY

I’m reading all the Mothering Sunday posts and reflecting:
I don’t have a mum any more.
And I’m not a mother myself.
So, regardless of why, that’s just how it is today…

For every mother and every child there’s a single story.
And it’s different for each and everyone of us.
Made out of genetics, chance and a million interactions.
Starting in the womb, then pushing out and pushing a way through life.

And I’ve heard it said that we choose our parents.
That’s both coldly crazy and softly sane in different measures.
I know I have chosen what I take from and learn from mine.
That’s some bitterness turned in to much sweet reason.

I’ve chosen the love and the laughter.
The generosity, the surprise gifts and all the toast.
The recognition of a tough job with the tough and easy love.
And today, what ever our story is, to celebrate my mother.

And there are no birth babies for me, but I’ve created so much.
I’ve played with god children and cooed over little ones.
I’ve hugged, hid, tickled, spoilt and giggled many times over.
I’ve witnessed the joy of new generations and played my part in their lives.

So Happy Mother’s day, what ever your denomination.
Whether in flesh or memory – seen or invisibly felt.
Regardless of our parenthood, there wouldn’t be a mother without – us.
So celebrate and be a cause for celebration:

And most of all – have a Happy Child’s Day – what ever that means – for you.

Moon Poem

full moon

I’ve been moon bathing by the light of a fabulous full moon, meditating, musing on; then creating and releasing my intentions…
So I just had to seal the deal with a poem…

Thank you mother moon,
light of Gaia,
for birthing so much.

For all of the abundance,
for the purity,
and the clean clarity.

For the pulsing oceanic pull
of my cells and DNA,
spiralling in waves of wonder.

I am blessed with the love
of your brightness.
Carressed in seamless eternity.

My desires dreamed, are real,
created and co-existent
as I serve your earth’s children.

This is my crescendo thank you…
with body, heart and soul,
for a 1000 more glorious good nights.

And this was my own moon song
of sweet gratitude, farewelled
then released softly up into the ether.
