That’s my daughter, Maggie! She’s visiting me in Arizona this week alllllll the way from New York. It’s been a couple of months since I’ve seen her, so this is a real thrill! Today we’re going to Pagan Pride day… among other things! It’s so gratifying and wonderful to share that with her. She’s a witch too. And I have to say, I’m pretty damn proud of the woman she’s becoming.
One of the things I learned, or figured out, or was given by the wisdom of the universe a while back had to do with motherhood and what is really important. I started observing other parents and their children. I watched mothers of little ones. I analyzed relationships between mothers and their grown daughters. I figured out that, whenever I was in a quandary about any issue in my own life, if I imagined my daughter in the same situation, instantly, I would know the wisest answer. We love our kids unconditionally, as we SHOULD love ourselves. So when you take that perspective, suddenly, you know exactly what you have to do. And it isn’t always the easiest thing or the most convenient thing… but it’s the RIGHT thing. Because our kids never grow up to do what we say. They grow up to BE WHO WE ARE! So, If you want the best for your child, you have to do what’s best for you! End of story!
We’re going to go have fun now! Cause that’s what’s best for us today! It’s in keeping with my recent blogs about laughter and gratitude.
May you all have a Sunday filled with joy and laughter and gratitude!
