|My Mom and Chiquita|
When I was a boy of 14, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I got to be 21, I was astonished at how much the old man had learned in seven years. ~ Mark Twain
Moving Toward Mother’s Day
I am currently visiting with a new Hospice friend in which the caregiver-patient relationship is also that of a mother and daughter. It seems that quite a variety of recent conversations have reminded me of my current life position in which I have revisited life lessons learned from my Mother. My Mother, although in over the 5 ½ years since her death she has remained more silent and reserved in her visits,(as compared with other relatives) she has recently made it clear that and when she is present. The lessons I thought I learned from my Mother have grown, changed and expanded in scope.
Lessons Learned From Our Mothers
- Our perspective changes as we move through our continuing life cycle
- Lessons may be interpreted differently as we move toward the age of our parents
- Life experiences may change our moral, values, beliefs and about life and how we value it
- Our understanding and chosen perspective depends upon our own life journey and what and how we have incorporated our spirituality into our human existence
When I was ten, I thought my parents knew everything. When I became twenty, I was convinced they knew nothing. Then, at thirty, I realized I was right when I was ten. ~ Mark Twain
