Life Lessons From Your Soul - Mothering

Mothers come in so many different packages. They don't have to be the traditional wife who carries a child in her womb and gives birth. They can come through the caring woman in your life who will do anything to help you in your time of need. They come through the person who gives a smile or a hug right when you need it. Moms can be store clerks who help you out or the nurse at your bedside who wants to know what the comatose patient in the bed is ike so she can bond with her.

Isabel is one of my favorite moms. She has a rare ability to just allow her children to be who they are without telling them how they should be. She says what she needs to when she fears they are going down a path she can see may not be the primrose one but she always manages to pull back and allow them to make thier own choices. Her strength and steadiness teaches the soul quality of surrender combined with the personality's need to live consequences for choices.

Isabel's daughter Kathryn threw her arms around me today and said "Happy Mother's Day. You are my other mom you know." Tears welled up in my eyes. For years I ached to hear those words. I wanted a child so deeply. Now, I have three to help through a difficult time.

The soul knows what you need. When you ask for what you truly desire, it answers the personality's wish. You just don't know how the answer will come to you. It just does. Gratitude for how ever your soul brings it to you is the lesson. When you can be grateful despite the worst of circumstances, you have mastered a deeply meaningful life lesson.
