MEET MAMA BEAR: THE BOOK
“To describe my mother would be to write about a hurricane in its perfect power. Or the climbing, falling colors of a rainbow.” – Maya Angelou
On a flight last year there was a very strange and briefly scary landing. In the fast moments where I genuinely wondered "Are we about to die in a plane crash?" Immediately following that thought was: "I never finished the book about mom..." I was grateful that in the flashes of those moments that I felt like I had loved my people the best I could and soaked them up as much as I could. I felt like I'd been risky but thoughtful in big picture life decisions; that I'd worked hard at the things I care about but made time to rest and be still. It's funny because I don't at ALL feel like I have the balance down in my regular thoughts. I will feel guilty or like I'm not doing enough or that I make too many excuses or that I am too selfish. In that moment I was surprised to feel so at peace: "You really tried to live life well. You did the best you could with what you had and who you were and the pace that you grew. It was a good life... but you didn't write about your mom." I took that as the sign I needed to re-devote myself. So, I'm very happy to announce that "Meet Mama Bear: Life Lessons and Stories of My Mother" is here. It feels like part of my life's purpose is to be able to share with you the woman who raised me; the woman who would have never told these stories herself. I would give very much to be able to spend an hour with her, but this is a way I can let her spend an hour (or so) with many others.
A COLLECTION OF MY CURRENT FAVORITE LESSONS, MOST CHERISHED MEMORIES, AND LIFE-CHANGING REFLECTIONS FROM MOM.
