I downloaded a sleep time meditation podcast for Shaya this week. The guided meditation takes you through an imaginary journey on a magic carpet, especially designed for children. Once the magic carpet lands in a lovely place, you get to make one wish.
I was half dozing off, half keeping an ear on how Shaya was doing with her meditation, and that is when I overheard Shaya's wish.
She sat up in bed, held the phone in her hands as if to concentrate, and slowly said: "I wish my mom never dies."
It was so touching, so sweet and innocent. She could have wished for anything - any toy, any amount of chocolate in the world, or a palace full of princess gowns and glitter. But she wished for an eternity of "me".
As a mom, I could not have asked for a better gift for Mothers' Day!
I know we don't get to live forever, but I do know that a mom's love is eternal.
Here is a celebration to all of you mommies, who give it your best every day, and to the amazing moms who raised us. Thank you! I love you Mom!
I hope that you are all enjoying an amazing day with your babies, abundant with love and joy, and you get to celebrate your moms and mother figures in your lives even if they are far away.
Sending you all big hugs and much love,
