18/52 Happy Mother's Day
The young mother set her foot on the path of life. "Is the way long?" she asked. And her guide said, "Yes, and the way is hard. And you will be old before you reach the end of it. But the end will be better than the beginning." But the young mother was happy and she would not believe that anything could be better than these years. So she played with her children and gathered flowers for them along the way and bathed with them in the clear streams; and the sun shone on them and life was good, and the young mother cried, "Nothing will ever be lovelier than this." Then night came, and a storm, and the path was dark and the children shook with fear and cold, and the mother drew them close and covered them with her mantle and the children said, "O mother, we are not afraid, for you are near, and no harm can come." And the mother said, "This is better than the brightness of day, for I have taught my children courage." And the morning came, and there was a hill ahead and the children climbed and grew weary, and the mother was weary, but at all times she said to the children, "A little patience and we are there." So the children climbed and when they reached the top, they said, "We could not have done this without you, mother." And the mother, when she lay down that night, looked up at the stars and said, "This is a better day than the last, for my children have learned fortitude in the face of hardness. Yesterday I gave them courage, today I have given them strength." And the next day came strange clouds which darkened the earth -- clouds of war and hate and evil -- and the children groped and stumbled and the mother said, "Look up. Lift your eyes to the light." And the children looked and saw above the clouds an Everlasting Glory, and it guided them and brought them beyond the darkness. And that night the mother said, "This is the best day of all, for I have shown my children God." And the days went on, and the weeks and the months and the years, and the mother grew old, and she was little and bent. But her children were tall and strong and walked with courage. And when the way was rough they lifted her, for she was light as a feather; and at last they came to a hill, and beyond the hill they could see a shining road and golden gates flung wide. And the mother said, "I have reached the end of my journey. And now I know that the end is better than the beginning, for my children can walk alone, and their children after them." And the children said, "You will always walk with us, Mother, even when you have gone through the gates." And they stood and watched her as she went on alone, and the gates closed after her. And they said, "We cannot see her, but she is with us still. A mother like ours is more than a memory. She is a living presence." ~~ Temple Bailey
mommy's alright (365-190)
Day 190 of 365: a year in songs and photos Song: Cheap Trick, Surrender (Had to get this in every early today - not only is it Mother's Day, but my kids are both receiving their confirmation today [better late than never] and we have family coming over for a double celebration later) Of all the mother songs out there - of course, Danzig was the first thing to come to mind - I thought this one fit my mom the most. She's 69 going on 40 and never, ever seems old to me. This is a woman who still blasts Pink Floyd while cleaning the house. Instead of this long, rambling thing abotu why I love my mom, here's a poem I wrote a few years ago for my defunct blog, back when we wrote about cars a lot. Ode To My Mother's Driving Skills My mother drove a station wagon it was a 63 brown, no wood panels i remember number 2 pencils stuffed in the seat cushions with pennies and cookie crumbs and my little sister in a time before car seats tumbling around in the back like a loose bottle of soda all shook up and ready to explode when she'd cry we'd hold her head out the back window the wind in her face would make her laugh people would wave and we'd throw peace signs back at them my mother drove with a lead foot and a white kerchief on her dyed red hair a cigarette in her mouth virginia slims extra long she'd curse at the old people and the kids playing stickball and barrel down the streets kids out the window groceries flying around the back sometimes we'd get hit with a stray apple my mother's station wagon was like the best roller coaster or the scariest car ride depending on if you liked holding on for life while the wind slapped your face or if you preferred dodge darts driven by ladies with steady hands who would never dye their hair or smoke cigarettes Happy Mother's Day to all you mothers out there.
