Oh Heavenly Day…

14 Comments 14 May 2010

Oh Heavenly Day, those are the words to Patty Griffin’s song, from her album, Children Running Through, the song that rings through the video that my beautiful fifteen-year-old made for me for Mother’s day.  I was and still am really overwhelmed.  I wrote a couple of days a go a post about going “back to the future” so that you all could better understand who I am and so that you might have a context within to place the me that you will come to know on this blog.  This is a perfect piece to that puzzle. (TO SEE THE VIDEO – CLICK THIS POST TITLE)

My daughter gave me a letter and an eight minute video that I will truly treasure forever.  I was humbled.  The video took be back, made me cry, made me laugh and reminded me how full my life has been and still is because of my children.  Her letter, gave me a glimpse into her heart and assured me that I have given her good things with which to fill it, in spite of my failures as a mother.

I know I have failed in many ways as a mother, we all do.  I know I have fallen short, yelled too much, been selfish when I should have been self-less, gotten angry when I should have been patient, and given her many other opportunities to see my flaws.  However, I was reminded yesterday, again, that love covers a multitude of shortcomings!  My daughter’s video reminded me that I am loved, in spite of all of my short-comings as a mother and she let me know that I have let her know that she is loved, no matter her short-comings.

It is a powerful thing to be loved, just as you are.  When I look at my precious baby girl, the one the world sees as “retarded” and “not normal,” I think to myself, who could not love this child, just as she is?

I am a woman of deep faith and I believe I am loved perfectly by a God who knows all of my flaws, even the ones that my children know nothing about.  It is a beautiful thing to be loved.  I hope you were loved well or had the opportunity to love someone well.

Choose to love someone well today.  It is never too late to begin a new song in your family…to love your children, your siblings, your mother, your aunt, your friend or whomever – just as they are!

It was a heavenly day.  I would love to share with you my Mother’s Day…Mothers Day Video by Jorja White

    Jorja, I happened by because Chris Brogan suggested that this would be a good site to visit. Your post and the Mother’s Day Video is just wonderful. The love…the essence of this video is what every mother hopes for along the way. We all question our abilities as a mother, but just today my youngest, now 26, posted on FB, “I am proud of my mother’s efforts.” Wishing you success with your site…I love the title.

things to make you wonder~

“I am a frayed and nibbled survivor in a fallen world, and I am getting along. I am aging and eaten and have done my share of eating too. I am not washed and beautiful, in control of a shining world in which everything fits, but instead am wondering awed about on a splintered wreck I've come to care for, whose gnawed trees breathe a delicate air, whose bloodied and scarred creatures are my dearest companions, and whose beauty bats and shines not in its imperfections but overwhelmingly in spite of them...” Annie Dillard
