Happy Mother's Day...may your sabbath be blessed

(wild turkey in hawaii...not the whisky)

At our best, we become Sabbath for one another. We are the emptiness, the day of rest. We become space, that our loved ones, the lost and sorrowful, may find rest in us.

~ Wayne Muller ~
From "Sabbath" quoted in How Shall We Live by Joan Chittister, OSB

Whether you celebrate your sabbath on Friday, Saturday, Sunday, or not at all, I hope you have enjoyed rest and restoration.

May you find rest in your loved ones and they in you.

It really is all about love and loved ones!

What a beautiful, mindful statement. I've shared the quote with a friend. May it help us all to sit more gently with one another.

That turkey almost looks like it's dancing.

Hope you had a happy Sabbath.
