“We are all just walking each other home.” ~ Ram Dass
In my deepest heart I believe that peace on earth begins with birth. This I know, when we love and support a woman as she becomes a mother we teach her how to love and nurture her baby. We also teach her in turn to love and empower other mothers as she was loved and empowered. A woman who is empowered moves through the world and empowers the lives of the women around her. Her strength becomes a flame that can light other flames, and can extinguish the darkness that otherwise surrounds us.
Today I wish to honor these women (and little girl) who have taught me, loved me, and supported me ~ so that I learned how to teach, love and support others. If I have anything of value to offer this world, it is thanks to these women (and little girl) and others just like them.
