The Path of a Mother

The journey begins

at the point of conception, adoption

there is no turning back

You face

death, breath

hope, fear

elation, exhaustion

pain, joy

dreams, nightmares

tears, laughter


crossing the threshold

to shepherd a life

the path of a mother

May all the mothers reading this be honored on their journey. Relax and honor yourself on this Mother’s Day

  1. If I knew as a child what I know now, Mom,
    I probably wouldn’t have made things
    so hard for you.
    I would have understood
    that you were looking out for my best interest.
    even though it may not have seemed so at the time.
    I would have known how difficult it is to let go,
    to stand back and let someone you love
    learn from their mistakes.
    I would have realized
    how fortunate I was to have a mother
    who was always there for me,
    even after an argument,
    even after I’d said things
    I shouldn’t have.
    While it’s too late for a lot of things
    it’s not too late for me to tell you
    that I appreciate how loving you are,
    how giving you’ve always been
    and that even though
    I may not always be good at showing it,
    I love you very much.

    Words borrowed out of respect, and sent with love, from;
    “If I knew As A Child,”
    -Renee Duvall
