Continue on reading about the inspiration for this kit.
Had people had listened to her cries for help, she could have been spared many painful experiences, that continued in her life until..she was almost 17 years of age..
Her mother owned what she called a cat of nine tails..which was 4 skidoo belts cut and taped together with duct tape, by which at 16, she was whipped so bad from head to toe..that she could not sleep on her back for over a week..from the pain of the bruised welts, that were all cut and had bled in the center. She was forbidden to go to school or go out of the house and sentenced to
clean the whole house while it healed.
Had her mother thought it was okay to be less then perfect and sought help instead of living in shame because she was less then perfect..things would have been different...had peer pressure of society not been what she measured herself by..things would have been different.
Our children are so effected by peer pressure..we are ourselves and the hardest thing in the world is to be yourself and to understand the influence the media..has on us and our understanding of life..
Kindness is a universal thing
by which we can each choose to be in our lives..it knows no religion but is of the heart..
Random acts of kindness can change the world and make the world a better place for everyone, one act of kindness at a time.
She is not a sad person for all of this but a person who is loving and most of all forgiving.
When asked, how could you love your mother so much after all you have been through..she thought about it and answered..."I love my mother with all my heart and I made the choice and sought to understand her and forgive her."
I read a lovely passage on Hilmaroses Blog that so touched my heart..as it is so true..it is what we are doing when we create with love... it is what we are going to leave behind in the memories we create with our families and friends, not only in pictures but in heart.
"What you leave behind is not what is engraved in stone monuments, but what is woven into the lives of others." Pericles
Since my mother passing on...I am having good days and moments when tears just hit me that puts a pain in my heart..that aches, but I feel her with me in all I do
A few weeks before she got really sick we were speaking on the phone..and she told me..how very proud of me she was...words..that meant the world to me..for many reasons and I told her how much she meant to me...she told me she was getting her will ready and asked if there was anything I wanted..wow..that was a hard question..because you don't want anything more then your mother...and a mothers love...and you miss it so much..when it is not there..when you can't pick up the phone and say I love you...
Each of you have touched my life in helping me understand...and from you I have come to start working on putting together...my family history..I discovered that my grandfather was born..on Cherry Street in Boston, Mass.
and I even found a picture of Cherry Street on Google...which I have kept to work on a family album..for my brothers and sister..
Thank you for being a part of my Garden..
There is a passage I read somewhere that grew into a important part of my life somewhere along the way
You can never be to careful
Of the seeds your hands will sow
For love from love is sure to ripen
Hate from Hate is sure to grow.
