You’re a Real Mother…. ;)

Since it is Mother’s Day here in North America I thought it would be fitting to share a little advice my Mother instilled in me as a young child. This quote from her are words I try to live by. Whenever I got in trouble or did something inappropriate or disobeyed at school my Mother would punish me but she would always say to me as I was denying any involvement in whatever situation I was getting shit for “Lindsay, you have to accept responsibility and move on.” I don’t know why but these words stuck with me and whenever I think of my Mother these are the first words that pop into my head. I have also included a poem below that is about a Mother and Daughter relationship in a story I wrote, it seems fitting for the day! Happy Mother’s Day to all the Mothers in the blog world and the real world, thanks for all the love and support!

You are the vine, roping me tight

holding my limbs when I put up a fight.

You are the tree, grounding my soul

From the first day my heart you stole.

You are the tear, falling from my eye

when I have no answer for my why.

You are the moon, lighting my darkness

showing me peace in all its starkness.

You are the sun, warming my heart

letting me know we will never part.

You are the song, ringing in my ear

calming my sadness, tabling my fear.

You are the wind, washing over me

keeping my spirit open and letting me be free.
