Unconditional Love

I held in me tonight
A deep deep gratitude for my children
Feeling into my heart
How much I love
Them
Not just parts of them or even the good parts of them
But all of them
Their whole being
For all that they are
Accepting the places I know I went wrong
In them
Did not see
Forgot the gratitude
For a moment
The challenges and the turmoil  This unconditional love

For a moment tonight
I held the deepest gratitude in my heart
For my children
Their teaching of me
It reminded me
Why I was here
Who would I be without
Them
How would life
Have possibly become
Dare not think it
No other way
Would fulfil this
Part of my own heart

This moment
I hold the deep love
And I keep holding
For what I know exists
For those in their innocence
Mother knows what only a mother can know
A deep pain a fear a guilt
All tied into that deep love
Heart wrenching
Never to be forgotten
It lives on forever
Never ceasing
Never wanting it to end
No matter what arises
No matter the journey
Gratitude in my heart
For the love the deep searing passion of love
Never ever to be forgotten

I held in me tonight
A deep deep gratitude for my children
Feeling into my heart  

How much I love 

Them 

Not just parts of them or even the good parts of them

But all of them
Their whole being
For all that they are
Accepting the places I know I went wrong
In them
Did not see
Forgot the gratitude
For a moment
The challenges and the turmoil

This unconditional love.

About Caroline Carey

Caroline is an English Grandmother and an aspiring crone~elder, an author of four books, a speaker and innovative and creative teacher, offering her work via workshops and gatherings online as well as internationally. By adapting the religious education insisted on by her family, she was able to recognise her own innate connection to God/Spirit and has been on a spiritual path since childhood. She is a champion of music, dance and poetry as healing tools since she was four years old and developed an innate understanding of the soul’s journey, a connection to physical embodiment through movement, theatre and the creative arts. Her work is harmonious with nature. Her journey has manifested as her own personal training into eldership and crone-hood, carrying the wisdom needed for stability and balance in individuals, relationships, families and communities. Mothering her six, now adult, children, gave Caroline the art of play, creativity, story-telling and opened up the deep surrender and unconditional love that motherhood can bestow. Caroline has trained in many modalities of dance, therapeutic and spiritual teacher trainings since 1986. She is a writer who has published her autobiography and four other books about her spiritual work. Her latest book, 'Middle Earth Wisdom' will be published soon. She lives in UK with her husband Ben Cole, a film-maker, a director who works with men’s initiation groups. They often offer work together, incorporating dance, presentation and film. Caroline is: A mother and grandmother A writer and poet A dancer A spiritual life coach A catalyst for change She is available to you for guidance
