honor to stop, listen, and receive your voice as you call me
mom.
As a mom sorely unprepared for the early days we shared
together, thank you for being my teachers, my mentors, my
salvation. You saved me from dogmatism and pride and being
a know-it-all. You gently, and at times firmly, grabbed my hand
and pulled me into a place of grace. Grace for myself, for each
of my children, and for those I previously deemed “other.”
Thank you for showing me that my call is not to save, but to
walk alongside and embrace the full range of life together with
you, my children. I hope that you always know that you are
deeply and dearly loved.
Love,
Mom
