After the rain - the rainbow?
Calmness and hope come and go and come again, don't they? Some days are full of tears, others are ok-ish and again others give profound insights and changes, usually through heaps of tears and despair.
Often hope and change come in little moments. Moments like seing a beautiful rainbow... and then deciding to make anything beautiful a place to remember and connect with our beautiful far away souls.
One of those moments came to me after a night of being up crying in anger guilt and sadness. I finally wanted to ask my son if he could forgive me. And the thought that came back to me was that he'd probably forgive me everything. The much harder part (and the next task and challenge for me) was to forgive myself.
To realize, that there was nothing to forgive really because I had done the best that I could with the knowledge I had then. And really this insight has helped me to forgive and reconnect countless other times too, even with my kids in the midst of a tantrum or shouting storm. It's ok, really.
It's where they are with how they feel and what they can grasp. Let the storm pass and reconnect and then see how we can make the best of it.
Please forgive me for rambling here.
