Mother’s day started in Ancient Egypt by honoring the Goddess Isis, and I know why.
Mom, you are my Isis.
You seek justice, help those in need, find righteousness in people, and see the best in everyone with no judgement. You are a manifestation of all things spiritual.
You are the mother of MY nature.
In our lives, we have times when a darkness, a light of obscurity, a cloud of fear, engulfs us. It back us in a corner with nowhere to go, and swallows us whole. It’s hell’s shadow; it’s the antithesis of peace, love, and light. In order to continue you’re life’s journey, one has to escape such a prison of despair.
The key to the lock is YOU. When nights of suffering surround me, the brightness of the day saves me. A light of such intensity, it surpasses the radiance of the brightest star. You are the cosmic light, the illumination that causes the darkness to flee away. You are the shroud that covers me from the dark miseries that life may manufacture.
You are freedom. You are love. You are peace. You are you, and I am thankful!
Today marks the celebration of YOU, and for me, it marks the wisdom you’ve instilled in all of us. You are the peace to my turmoil, the answer to my questions, the humility to my ego, and the everything to my nothing.
Even my words cannot describe what you mean not only to me, but to all that have had the pleasure to be graced by your presence.
You are the cool wind on hot days, the rain that pours on desert floors, the warmth of a fire in sub zero temperature.
Thank you mother, you will always be the best example of what a human should be. To just say “I love you” would be an injustice to what you mean to me as a totality.
Happy Mother’s Day!
Just one of the thousand hearts and souls you’ve touched, your son
