A Mothers Day Prayer

I pray for mothers and children who are fortunate to be around each other, may they be grateful.

For the mothers who silently mourn the loss of their unborn babies and children, and the children that mourn the loss of their mother, comfort them.

For the new mothers, give them strength to embrace the ups and downs of motherhood.

For the single mothers trying to hold it together, may they find the strength to do so.

For the mothers that need a break and can’t get one, that they may find moments to relax.

For the stay at home mothers and for the working mothers who work around the clock, may they find the right balance.

For the mothers raising a special child, give them the patience and strength to do so.

For the mothers caring for a sick child and for children caring for a sick mother, give them comfort and courage.

For the mothers rejected by their child, may they be reunited.

For the mothers trying to restart their career, may they find the right job.

For the mothers in need of self esteem and confidence, that they may see that they are fiercely and wonderfully made.

For the mother worrying and waiting for her child to return, may she hear her child’s voice to put her mind at ease.

For the mothers who have strained relationships with their children, may they find their way to each other.

For the mothers and children battling life threatening illnesses, give them strength and courage.

For the mothers that have lost their soulmate’s, may their children fill their loneliness with happiness.

Lastly, I pray for the mothers who have gone on before us, may they continue to watch over their children and be at peace.

Flame

Like a moth to a flame

I am drawn to you.

Round and round I fly

In the warmth of your glow.

Fly to you,

And I can sore.

Fly into you,

And I’ll fall to the floor.

Come alive

Sinking.

Your head can’t focus,

Your legs are buckling.

You call out for someone to hold you,

And there in those arms

It doesn’t matter if you go,

There is no fear or worry.

You feel its just easy to let every thing go.

A little worried voice calls out to you,

And for a second you focus

On those terrified little eyes.

You feel your strenght return,

The cold sweat begins to disappear,

And you realise that even though you feel like you have fallen apart

You want to survive

That little voice needs you to be alive.

Someone

Chose to be with someone who is your best friend,

Someone that makes you laugh,

Someone who knows where you come from,

Someone who strengthens your weaknesses and is in awe of your strengths.

Be with someone who makes you want to be a better person,

Someone who doesn’t only take but gives back in the way you want,

Someone who listens and wants the best for you,

Someone who is intelligent and can give you advice.

Be with some one that wants to see you be all that you can be,

Someone that respects you and your decisions,

Someone that can look past your scars,

Someone that can love you passionately and gently.

Someone who wants to be your partner until the end of time.

Finding Me

Look at you…

You are all grown up now..

Strong, independent, intelligent and passionate.

I knew you always had it in you.

You can go anywhere, become anything.

Don’t ever forget that you are wonderfully made.

I have watched you love and let go

And I know you feel alone.

We have always been connected

Life threw us apart, the universe brought us together.

So hold on.

You will always have me where ever you go.

Now that I have found you,

I promised myself that I won’t let you go.

Stripped to my Soul

I have not posted in ages. But here goes…

When you have been just going with the flow…. being complacent… it numbs so many parts of you and it also changes you unknowingly. But then, there is a restlessness that starts to build up inside.. you can’t put your finger on what is going on! I battled this restlessness, it has been a fight that I did not understand, I burried my self into my daily home routine. I had no clue from where or what this restlessness was until it broke me. I found myself not sleeping at night… the crazy headaches…. the sadness…. the tears….and I did not know why.

I have a family that I do love very much. So what was it that was making me so miserable? And then the day came, I did not want to wake up, to get out of bed, I wanted to stay under the covers and cry. Nobody knew the struggle I was facing.. what could I tell them? I have been a person carrying a smile around and had it all together.. a strong person.

Finally, I said it. I am broken. Broken inside. I am lost.

I went into myself…. my brain was being stubborn. It resfused to bow down to my heart’s sorrow. I could not find any answers there. Then it came upon me like a storm… It swept over me these feelings, desires, needs, goals. And that’s when I began to listen to my soul. A forgotten part… just ‘Me’. And I realised that I needed to please my soul….i have to nourish it… I have to love it a whole lot more for who she is…embrace all that she wants to be… All her dreams, her desires, everything.

So here I am, fully aware of myself. I am a whole lot of woman. I am exploding with energy from with in. I am taking baby steps. Only I can fuel the road ahead. Changes. It’s chaotic. But complacency, now that is the killer. Let’s live our lives, being true to our selves. Let’s not just go with the flow, do things like it’s always been done… remember that times change and situations change, you cannot expect to function the same way.

So live. Listen to your soul. Your heart is just afraid of being broken, don’t let it stop you. Your mind is influenced by your soul. So those butterflies that you feel in your belly when you want to make a change…. it’s a good thing. You have to believe in yourself, enough to know that it’s ok to fall, it’s ok to be disappointed, because it’s not going to be easy…. Change is going to be hard. So when you are ready to take that step….go ahead….. Make your move…..lean on somebody….if you can…. Be broken… feel low… it’s ok. You will rise… above everything that you have… everything… you will see all that you want to be…And you can start from there.
