Sometimes I wish I could fly
Like a bird up in the sky
Closer to my home
Motherless children have such a really hard time
A long way from home
Sometimes I feel like freedom is so near
But we're so far from home
(Van Morrison and Others)
A child who is, or feels, parentless, will have great inner turmoil in
their adult life.
The human mind can grasp events such as natural death, & eventual
If it is due to physical or emotional separation, abandonment,
rejection, or neglect, the long-term consequences are devastating.
The human mind finds it very difficult accepting and coming to terms
with knowing some one would choose to do so deliberately &
Please encourage anyone you know in that category to reconcile - to
make things right - while they still have the chance: they can’t be
sure of being here tomorrow to do it. They can’t speak from the
grave, nor can they speak to someone lying cold. It will make a huge
difference to all involved: healing & breaking the cycle.
Love your children (tell & show them regularly – and mean it). If you
don’t know how - it’s never too late to learn - do it while you all still
breathe: guilt, regret, anger & fear are terrible to live with after.
Only the wounded heal
– only the separated reconcile.
|When others hurt,
If we put ourselves in their shoes,
it would hurt us, too.
Then we can understand their hurt.
Those who hurt, those who have searched,
And those who have tried,
Truly appreciate the importance of people
Who have touched their lives.
Love all those . . .
you meet and treat them as people
who mean something to you;
who’s lives you’ll touch in one way or another,
and who have touched yours, or will.
Smile at those who really need one; as others
make you smile when you really need it.
Help them see the brighter side of things; as those
who make you see the brighter side of things
when you are really down,
Be a friend to them; as you acknowledge
those who you want to know that
you appreciate their friendship.
It is not how much we give,
but how much love we put into giving.
Guilt, regret, anger & fear are terrible to live with after . . .
- only the wounded heal: only the separated reconcile
