I Want For Mother’s Day. . . a grown up world. . . .
As I approach my 86th birthday in a few weeks, and on the eve of another Mother’s Day, I hope I am closer to understanding what life is about and maybe have you understand why this white haired woman sees nothing in the playthings of life that seem to enchant others. What do I want and what do I need are one and the same.
Simply, a grown up world. Children who are children are a wondrous thing to enchant. But big bodies in motion with childish emotions are an eyesore and they break my heart. How to help raise adults to be examples for the young? Be one. Just be one. You all have played the field with your games and have been doing the bedroom gymnastics around the world. Now look at yourselves in the bathroom mirror and please, without alibis, say from this moment on I will be the example I never had. Grow up or go sit in the corner until you do.
We have seen the heartache engendered by your antics and even those who have been innocent hurt beyond repair. Now from this day onward a new set of rules. The powerful will not take advantage of the young and innocent. And those who are not well endowed with monies or looks will be given a self esteem that will demand others to behave with decency and above suspicion at all times. There is a scorekeeper lest you think not.
We will see mothers who will mother and fathers who will father. And we will see children with open heads being given a childhood that will surely enchant them. And we will see a world where steps will be taken and people will grow to maturity with a range of motions and emotions befitting adulthood. I want a grown up world.
There will be chaos in the bedrooms and there will be arguments at the dinner table and there will be a change in behavior when people are given to know what behaviors engender what consequences. It will not be done overnight, but I was asked what I wanted for Mother’s Day and I have told you. I want children growing up adult who are true humans. Human and divine. True beings of whatever system of belief is held by them, but true humans. I have pulled my life through my heart and given it my best shot. This is a big want. Make it happen.
