New Year’s Day…and my fingers are left speechless. I’m creating a post that is ‘saving a space’ here, for mothers. Father Jerome delivered a homily at Mass this morning that caused me to weep/blubber/cry. Once again, I was put in touch with the lovely idea of the mother of God…Mary…the one who carried her son in the ‘tabernacle of her womb’, nurtured him when he was a toddler, taught him to say his prayers…sat with him in his ultimate pain. It all causes me to miss and love my mother…to think about my beautiful grandmothers and to wish to be a better parent.
