I’m conflicted celebrating Mothers Day
for reasons I have to share.
Like birthdays.... mum's religion has
forbidden it every year.
Their followers are taught scripture
where Mother’s day, they have been ridden.
These pagan rituals can’t be celebrated.
False Gods, you aren't forgiven.
Time and again, like many religions
men choose words from the bible.
To control and create fear in hearts,
where your conscience is then liable.
The interesting thing is that Mothers Day
doesn’t come from a female goddess.
Anna Jarvis who was an American lady,
was actually a woman who was really modest.
Her mum helped soldiers... during the war,
where government then made if official.
They chose this day… to remember ALL mums,
giving birth to an American ritual.
Again…like any well intentioned purpose,
things soon got out of hand.
Hallmark cards made it a commercial venture
in the 1920's, another trend!
I hate to douse this day in facts.
but it always makes me think.
Millions of dollars are spent each year,
that takes me to the brink.
Isn’t EVERY day a Mother’s Day
where we take time out to care?
Even if you didn’t KNOW your mum…
without her, you wouldn’t be here!
The relationship.. I have had with mum
has taken YEARS... for us to mend.
Understanding one another’s truth,
both sides have had to bend.
In a couple of weeks… my mother is visiting,
to attend a Christian convention.
Her last night in Sydney, she’ll stay with us.
I LIVE for reconnection!
Mum loves to cuddle our doggie Tintin.
She’s cute, she calls him ‘grandson’!
We’ll celebrate Mother’s Day together
Each day, we're glad we've had SOME.
The moral of this story and ...
REGARDLESS of your belief.
Is to honour the woman who birthed you,
she's YOUR branch.....and you...HER leaf!
