mother’s day 2014

Sunday, May 11, 2014

These are the words that spring to mind when I think of my mother. Just about every time we talk on the phone she reminds me that she’s always praying for me. If you understand how screwy and dysfunctional our entire family is, you understand that this is God’s love, not Mom’s—God’s mercy shines through her, and I’m glad she lets it.

From Bob Dylan’s “Covenant Woman”:

“I just got to thank you
Once again
For making your prayers known
Unto heaven for me
And to you, always, so grateful
I will forever be”
