Wasn't Jesus the original hippie? With his sandals, dress and kind, compassionate, tender, joyful nature? What a loaded word that is! I am oftentimes called a hippie – in some ways, I am, some not. I am an Older Mom with Young Kids and Older Kids, Four in All – Remarried, Striving to make a Step Family with Love and God's help.
I close my eyes, and I see red.
It is anger, blood pounding – that blood you are so scared of.
It is all the people in my life who told me I am not good enough.
Not strong enough.
Not worthy enough.
I close my eyes, and I change the color.
It is blue.
I get it finally.
I get how we only attract that which we think we are worthy of.
I get how every moment we have a choice.
And told me some stories about how every single beautiful, Christmas card worthy family photo she’s ever taken includes sweating mothers behind the scenes and crazy kids. I’m going to ask her to share some of those stories over here soon so we can let ourselves off the hook and remember that we’re all normal after all.
In the words of my friend the Nester, it doesn’t have to be perfect to be beautiful.
