A song for Mother’s Day

This song — by Catholic singer/songwriter Marie Bellet — is gorgeous.   I have to say, it pretty much captures my life as the mom of young kids.   There are so many moments when I just want to fast-forward to what I imagine will be a simpler time, a time when the kids are older and just less work.    But when I wish that, it means that I’m wishing away the crazy but beautiful here and now, when the boys are so young and so sweet and so innocent.   This is a blessed time, this ordinary time.  This song is a beautiful reminder of that.

So Happy Mother’s Day to all moms, grandmothers, foster mothers, godmothers, and all who play a mother’s role.    May we always cherish this ordinary time.
