Motherly Love

by Joy Monger

My mom kindly prodded me to add a new post to my blog.  She astutely noticed that the last post I got stuck on for two months was one on writer’s block.  Ironic much?

And then she sent me this lovely message about something else entirely unrelated:

Once the realization is accepted that even between the closest people infinite distances exist, a marvelous living side-by-side can grow up for them, if they succeed in loving the expanse between them, which gives them the possibility of always seeing each other as a whole and before an immense sky. (Rainer Maria Rilke)

How does she know the right things to say to push but not push too hard?

Thanks Mom.
