We share a lot of the same loves, my Mother and I. I didn’t realise just how many until she was gone, and reflection was all I had left.

Too many layers of stuff inbetween.

Non judgemental time for reflection. Bring that into real life child.

  1. Jen that is beautiful.
    I’ve been trying to say what you’ve invoked & keep deleting it.
    Sending hugs x

  2. Wonderful….

    Made me think that at times the “stuff inbetween” makes things look even more beautiful. Then we realise things that we knew already but didnt notice in real time.

  3. I found that after a time, when my continuing life sifted through my memories and the stories that I held inside about my mother, that I had the opportunity to lift the veils and see the possibilities of other things my mother taught me. Things that I was too pig headed and self infatuated to see. At the time I disliked the new revelations but realised that a hardness in a person is also an invitation to realise the softness that is its opposite and that you can be that softness. I think it can also be termed “tough love”.

  4. Wondeful image and text Jen, thanks for sharing. It really struck a chord with me.

  5. Just so beautiful Jen, your words “I didn’t realise just how many until she was gone,” ring so true. Your words are very thought provoking.
