I need a bridge, some healing salve with my children. It's that tiny little part of time when you are stretched beyond belief and they want to stretch you that little bit more. Most mothers have these times in their lives. I heard this quote yesterday which I hope to use in my daily life as a mother to help me through those rough times...
“To do what I can is normal. To go beyond my capacities is a challenge. Where my capacities ends, there begins my faith. A strong faith sees the invisible, believes the incredible and receives the impossible.”
I got myself along to a Buddhist meeting yesterday, the first one in a few months. I was inspired to hear a women get up and speak about how Buddhism had transformed her life. Her early childhood was sad, desperate. She turned around her life and that of her emotionally abusive father. This is one of the quotes she used.
