The Virgin Mary and walks in the woods

Oh, it’s a rough patch. Sleepless nights with the babe, arguments with loved ones, a trip to the emergency room with my first migraine today. In an ambulance. In a snow storm.

I’m struggling. And feeling like we can’t catch a break.

In the roughest moments, I sometimes talk to The Virgin Mary.

Nothing fancy, just chatting with a friend.

No, I’m not Christian, even in the slightest. Not knocking those who are.

But she seems like she likes listening. And I need that.

She’s a mother too.

and that helps.

At least a little.

And walks in the woods help too.

Thank you for listening, I think there’s no way to tell you how much it means.

  1. The Blessed Mother is an endless source of solace and strength, whether or not one is Christian, just as Mother Earth is a comfort even if one isn’t Pagan.

    You are beautiful.
