I’m grateful for moms, stepmoms, and mom-like figures aligned with the energy of love, abundance, and peace. I have been blessed in so many ways in my life. Amazing women who amplify love, abundance, and peace is definitely something I’m very grateful for. Nobody I’ve met has ever been aligned with love, abundance, and peace 100% of the time. We are all on journeys that take us through fear, lack, and separation and into love, abundance, and peace. Some of us may get stuck in fear, lack, and separation for extended periods of time. That’s when the other mom-like figures can really can come into play.
When my own mom was going through periods of aligning with the energy of fear, lack, and separation, it was those mom-like figures who would step in and give me the love and support that I needed at the time. It could be sisters, grandmothers, aunts, friends’ parents, teachers, guidance counselors, AL-Anon members, friends, social workers, therapists, co-workers, etc. It’s the ones who give me the wisdom I’m lacking to see from a loving place in the moment. I was also blessed to have a “special” mom. She was my dad’s partner for 21 years before they both died within a few years of each other.
As for my mom, I’m so incredibly blessed that we have both been on a personal and spiritual growth journey since I was a teenager. This doesn’t make either of us perfect, but it definitely has helped tremendously when it comes to mom and daughter disagreements, triggers, and overall strife. We both always get back to the energy of love, abundance, and peace quickly. Our relationship has definitely taught me how to be the mother I want to be for my children. I’ve learned to take responsibility and accountability for what is mine and get back to the energy of love, abundance, and peace quickly. My mom is who SHOWED me that people can change, if they want to and are willing to put in the work. She also taught me to NOT be the, “Do as I say, not as I do” type of parent. I know my kids are watching me, and I LOVE what comes from that most of the time, except in traffic with aggressive drivers. I still have stuff to work on there from time to time. I do have to laugh when my stuff, for better or for worse comes out of their mouths.
I’m grateful for the village of women who have been there to support my children through some of our challenging times. They have been blessed with amazing grandmothers, aunts, family friends, teachers, guidance counselors, friends’ parents, and so much more. When I was going to school full-time as a single mom, I really leaned on their village of mom-like figures to make sure they were getting the love and support they needed. I love that they have women they can trust when we are having our challenging times.
Today, I commit to honoring the moms, stepmoms, and mom-like figures who spread love, abundance, and peace in the world. I’m getting teary just thinking about the ones that have had an impact on my life. I’m so incredibly grateful there are so many of us out there to give and spread love in the world. Today, if you are one of these amazing people, please know how loved and appreciated you are. What other people do for you today is not a reflection of the amazing people you are. It could be days, weeks, months, years, or even decades before you see the full impact. You may never physically see it, but if you stay aligned with the energy of love, abundance, and peace, you WILL FEEL it! Just keep doing what you do and continue to be the amazing people you are!
If any of the moms, stepmoms, and mom-like figures that have touched my children’s and/or my life are reading this, I’m so incredibly grateful for your role in our lives. I feel so incredibly blessed to be surrounded by so much love. This life can be challenging, and it’s people like you that help people move through the energy fear, lack, and separation so much faster. Thank you and please KNOW, how powerful your love is!
With Love, Abundance, and Peace,
