Motherhood, Shattered & Surrendered

Today is Mother’s Day; I am a mother of a three-and-a-half year old Matthew, and a one-and-a-half year old Emma. Today has been a day filled with all kinds of confusion as I continue to grapple with inner issues that have yet been reconciled, healed or properly understood.

Some have five-year plans, and others, bucketlists that include going to the moon. From this sentimental heart that never had endured even a one-year plan, and only accidentally stumbled upon the hint of a bucketlist dwelling within, here is mine, in no particular order or preference: 1.

The Final Farewell

The Missing Father

Today happens to be World Cancer Day, as I found out this morning at Marymount Kindy when the assembly lifted a prayer for all those suffering from cancer. So instead of peeking to see if Matthew had his eyes closed as instructed, I closed mine to join in the prayer. After all, today is also […] Read more…
