Sensational Sunday and Mother’s Day

Every Sunday the Single, Happy, and Strong Blog will have an exercise for you to do.  This is a wonderful way to start a new week; to reflect, grow, and begin a shift in your life.  This week for Sensational Sunday we honor our Mother’s and reflect on what motherhood means to you. If you are not a Mother, reflect of what it means to be women. Enjoy and honor yourself on this Mother’s Day.

My Mother was an incredibly wise, giving woman.  She did not have an easy life, but, she enjoyed life. I can still hear her contagious laughter. She was the family Matriarch and her death left a large whole in our family’s heart.  My Mother was my rock through my divorce and through the many years of difficult times I experienced.  I can still hear her saying to me, “There is always a rainbow after the storm, stay strong!”  How fortunate and Blessed I am.

Today take out your journal and write down some favorite memories you have of times with your Mother. If you were not close to your Mother, write memories of a mother figure, a grandmother or a woman you admire.  Our Mother’s are in our DNA and in our hearts forever. The chain of love is not broken even with death. Spend some time honoring them today.  They helped you become the beautiful human being that you are.

[Sonnets are full of love, and this my tome]

Christina Rossetti, 1830 -1894

Sonnets are full of love, and this my tome

Has many sonnets: so here now shall be

One sonnet more, a love sonnet, from me

To her whose heart is my heart’s quiet home,

To my first Love, my Mother, on whose knee

I learnt love-lore that is not troublesome;

Whose service is my special dignity,

And she my loadstar while I go and come

And so because you love me, and because

I love you, Mother, I have woven a wreath

Of rhymes wherewith to crown you honored name:

In you not fourscore years can dim the flame

Of love, whose blessed glow transcends the laws

Of time and change and mortal life and death.
