Thoughts for Your Next Visit Home To Mom

By Val Boyko • August 8th, 2011

I’m just back from a visit to Scotland. It was a wonderful trip. Sunny weather always helps of course! I’d like to share some things that came home to me as I came home again…. I hope these will be helpful for you on your next visit to your Mom.

Pink Lilac

Pink lilac symbolizes acceptance

Accept that living at a distance from each other can sometimes create more distance along with misunderstandings. Telephone calls and emails can never replace spending time together – whether its hanging out, shopping, coming up with ideas for picnics or preparing a meal together. Yes – there may be some overstepping, buttons and differences of opinions to deal with, however ….

Accept that in life and in all relationships there are ups and downs. Dynamics may have changed over the years along with circumstances. But at the end of the day, it feels so good to hug and know that she is still there for you.

Accept your mother as her own person. We say that a lot in Mother Whisperers, but it is powerful to pack that awareness into your suitcase and take it along with you.

Appreciate and love  her for who she is and the time you have together. Be open to how precious it is. It won’t be forever.
