“Family is functional, not biological”

I have lived by this motto for most of my life.  I was not blessed with a biological family that functioned and finally in my late 20’s I learned that “Family is functional, not biological”.  This week I am thinking about what a Mother means in my life.   I am not one of those daughters who was blessed with a loving mother who was always there for me.  And for a very long time that role has been vacant in my life, until now.

I have been blessed with many wonderful “Mothers” in the form of my students in my Senior’s class.  My students love me and support me in ways that I have never experienced before and I finally understand what it is to be loved by a Mother.

All of these wonderful ladies are a beautiful example of what a graceful, kind, generous woman should be.  They take care of themselves, their families and the people they love.  And I know I am one of the people lucky enough to be loved by them.

This has been a hole in my life for a very long time and I can not express in words what these wonderful women mean to me.  I never could have known that my path in Yoga would bring me not only a mission for my life but all the maternal love and support that I have been missing for all my life.

For all of my wonderful  functional “Mothers” in my Senior’s class; thank you for your love, support and kindness.   I love you all and I hope you have a wonderful Mother’s Day!!!
