When Dream Come True in Unexpected Ways

Many years ago, I was doing this visualization exercise. The idea was to close your eyes and “see” where you would be and what you would be doing 5, 10, 15…years into the future.  And I saw myself sitting on a bench, or some such, in a lush garden, with little ones running around kind of an island of beautiful flowers.  It was just a fleeting glimpse. It wasn’t until recently that I looked out on our tiny postage stamp sized yard, with the lilacs in full bloom along the fence and the azaleas opening up…and realized, this, this was what I saw when I closed my eyes.

It had not occurred to me that my “dream” of what motherhood would be like had come true. Sure, it doesn’t really look like that glimpse of idyllic peace I had all those years ago. But moments of it do. Just as I can’t share with you every minute of what my life is like, there’s no way I could dream every minute of what my life would be like. All I could imagine was what it would look like, not how it would feel or how deeply it would stir my soul.

So, to all the mothers out there---Happy Mother’s Day.

Especially if you are in the thick of things. I wish you the very best and I hope that you’ll remember those lovely moments of peace when everything was right with the world.

God Bless You.
