With Mother’s Day around the corner, I wanted to share again our Mother’s Day collection of art and writing. This holiday brings up such a range of feelings for all of us. This collection speaks to that range — stories of growth, acceptance, loss, and joy.
It is not just a collection for mothers but for mothers, fathers, daughters and sons because of course, all of us have a relationship to this topic.
What is in this collection doesn’t fit into a blog post or an Instagram feed or any of the other short form ways we click and scroll these days. This is more of a read to sit down with and savor, or come back to again and again. But to give you a taste, here are a few of the stunning and provocative words from this collection:
I remember that my children are looking to me to learn what life should feel like.
– Wokie Nwabueze
There’s a unique challenge to mothers these days: to listen to what extent that her genius’s soul is called in to the home and to what extent her genius’s spirit is called out to the world. How to make room for both?
– Jeffrey Davis
Know that your children’s lives belong to them. Just because their bodies are small and dependent, doesn’t mean their souls are too.
– Hiro Boga
No matter where I am, my spirit is back at the church where I grew up so that I can once again sing to my mother, present her a rose, and again promise her that I will be better, that I will be everything she wishes for me.
– Felipe Hinojosa
