ah the weekend
may your weekend be lovely, restful and healing.
happy mother's day to all the mothers I know and love.
a special mother's day blessing to my loss-moms and my infertile trying (or done trying) moms. no matter where you are in your grief, where you are in your loss, where you are in your trying, may you be loved and comforted this weekend (and always).
and a special mother's day blessing to my friends whose moms have died. no matter where you are in your grief, may love's memory be a blessing. may you find comfort.
and for those who have a hard time celebrating the mother who hurt them: remember, your mom was human. sometimes human beings fuck shit up royally, but that doesn't make them evil. just flawed, like all of us. and sometimes that means you have to cut your losses and walk away. be safe now. be loved now. may you find ways to mother your own self instead and start healing your mother wound.
and if you just wanna celebrate the weekend, and skip the commercialization, go for it. may it be restful and healing.
