The Mother who's always there

Our parents often continue to play a strong role in our lives. But we don't need to expect a void when they're gone, because God, our Father-Mother, is always with us.

Throughout my school years I cherished the fact that I could always share good news, bad news, hopes, and disappointments with my mom. In return I would receive words of encouragement, congratulations, tenderness, or even a hug—whatever the situation needed. Mothers have a great way of intuiting just what their children need.

Even as an adult, I felt special joy both in sharing good news with her and in discussing troubling situations or difficult decisions. It seemed she would always be there to listen, help, and pray. When my mother passed on, I felt a very important part of my life was gone—not just her physical presence but, more important, the words of encouragement, the listening ear, and the wonderful hugs.
