Breathe In The Love That Today Brings

Happy Mothers Day!

The thing I love about today, and all days of celebration, is that there is permission – every where you look – to open your heart big and wide and let all the love, all around you, in.

And, really, you always have permission to do it, but as we move through our day to day lives, it is easy to forget.   It’s easy to forget that there is so much love in our lives, that we are loved and that our own hearts are just bursting with compassion and joy and gratitude for the amazing opportunity we have to be mothers.

So, today, breathe it in.  Feel the love.   Experience that sacred, blissful, cherished joy that comes to us because we are mothers.

I love this poem, one of my favorites.  I share it with you to remind you of that big, giant love and to let you know that I so love and appreciate YOU – so much.

i carry your heart with me by e.e. cummings

i carry your heart with me(i carry it in
my heart)i am never without it(anywhere
i go you go,my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing,my darling)
i fear
no fate(for you are my fate,my sweet)i want
no world(for beautiful you are my world,my true)
and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)

Have a wonderful day today!!

Much love,
Lisa
