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.
Yesterday, as I was getting ready for my friends to come over to participate in the Global Peace Meditation amidst managing my four children from aged two to thirteen, I had a bit of difficulty cultivating peace.
A few times I had to stifle the urge to scream, ‘Damnit, can’t you all cooperate and behave a bit more? I am BUSY getting ready to cultivate WORLD PEACE, GODDAMNIT.’
I even had to take a couple of breaks. I don’t claim to have mastered this whole Mama thing; I fail quite often. I have lots of personal relationships and situations in my life that are frustrating and painful.
