Spread 227 – One Wish November 11, 2013Posted by Orly in Uncategorized.
My son is turning 18 tomorrow morning. He is so beautifully complex and full of wonder, I am so proud of him. Using “Letters to My Son” by Kent Nerburn to help me make this wish: “It is my attempt to give the lessons of my life, so that you can use them in yours. They are not meant to make you into me. It is my greatest joy to watch you become yourself. But time reveals truths, and these truths are greater than either of us. If I can give them voice in a way that allows me to walk beside you during your days, then I will have done well. To be your mother is the greatest honor I have ever received. It allowed me to touch mystery for a moment, and to see my love made flesh. If I could have but one wish, it would be for you to pass that love along. After all, there is not much more to life than that.”
