A Little Bit of Mother Love

I have a small book of daily meditations that belonged to my mother called "The Promise of a New Day." The red cover has been worn down over the past thirty years by her hands, and now mine. On the inside is her signature: Dot Jackson, with a line under it. There are a few pages in the book that Mom took her pencil to; a sentence is underlined, sometimes a whole paragraph. Opening it up to read today's meditation, I noticed a check mark, next to the quote, in the upper left hand corner of the page. That tiny check mark was like a tap on the shoulder, a little bit of mother love coming my way.

If you can imagine it, you can achieve it.
If you can dream it, you can become it.

~ William Arthur Ward
