Happy Mother's Day


“Through the blur, I wondered if I was alone or if other parents felt the same way I did - that everything involving our children was painful in some way. The emotions, whether they were joy, sorrow, love or pride, were so deep and sharp that in the end they left you raw, exposed and yes, in pain. The human heart was not designed to beat outside the human body and yet, each child represented just that - a parent's heart bared, beating forever outside its chest.”   Debra Ginsberg

Happy Mother's day. I hope it's a wonderful time. I don't have any kids of my own, but I resonate with that quote. My nieces and nephews mean the world to me. When they hurt, I do too.

Melinda Cornish said...

Amen, that says it all. I remember the days when I naively thought that when they were grown I would have no worries.

Yep, you are so right about it all. Grand kids are a whole different (and easier) ballgame.
