MOTHER’S DAY ... Bittersweet

​Since March of 2010, Mother’s Day has been a day that brings a dense fog that enshrouds my heart.  Now, after 7 years, I dance freely in the clear light of day, having moved on with my life, able to think of my own mother with gratitude and love.  Tablet Magazine, a daily online magazine of Jewish news, has posted a heartfelt story of a young soon-to-be Jewish mother struggling with the disappointments in her own mother and desperate to resolve these issues before becoming a mother herself.  “The Helicopter Shrink,”by Judy Batalion just might be the “story” that speaks to you this Mother’s Day.
