Belong

“If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.” – Mother Teresa

Our family is the first place we discover a sense of belonging. From here we go out into the world and invite others into our lives, to be in relationship, expanding the circle. Moms teach and model unconditional love, proving that it’s possible in this world.

On Mother’s Day and everyday, in addition to my Mom, I am grateful for all of the special women in my life – sister, sister-in-law, aunts, nieces, cousins and girlfriends, whether they are a Mom or not. They have shown me how to love and be loved. Happy Mother’s Day to women everywhere who make life softer and sweeter, those still with us and those who are gone but remain ever present in our hearts. It’s good to belong.

  1. Thanks for this article.
    Looking forward to see an article on Father’s Day (if I’m right it’s on June 16 in th US and it already was last Thursday in Germany). Some readers being single dads like me would appreciate this.
    Have a nice weekend.

    • You will – both my Mom and Dad are my best friends. Dad’s are so important and he’s been a model for me in my life in so many ways. We make our families from what we are given. We all have the capacity to love and be loved, no matter single, married or whatever else. I am not a Mom or married so I know what it can feel like to be left out.

  4. Kathie, With all the hype about Mothers Day, I have been missing my mom a lot. But you remind me of my sisters, aunts, friends, and daughters-in-law, all the wonderful women in my life. Even my darling granddaughters can be part of this celebration – without mothers there would be no granddaughters. You just made me smile. (and yes, next month let’s celebrate the guys!)
