Chop Wood, Carry Water: A Mother’s Spiritual Practice

There is no right way. There is always a right now way.

I’m thinking of my mother’s life work (mothering four children) as I watch this and as I imagine what path I will soon travel. Karen’s book, Momma Zen: Walking the Crooked Path of Motherhood, is a small treasure — accessible, handy, and valuable. I have wanted to attend one of her talks but my schedule didn’t accommodate that. It’s a pleasure to see and hear her. You can read her too, at Cheerio Road.

The video is also at this link.

    It is so funny how, in the blogosphere, complete strangers become friends that you can share with. With these online friendships, you also get people sending good thought and prayers to you. I keep finding myself anxiously anticipating the arrival of your little one and to hear the news that mom and baby are doing wonderfully. All I can offer are my thoughts and prayers of a safe and healthy “fully becoming a mommy” day!
