“Remembering” my Mom and the sudden loss of her 16 years ago today.
As if I could ever forget her!

But it was time to heal just a little more so I sent this privately and personally to the one involved in the car accident.

‘We share this day. It was the day our lives changed in a way that would change everything forever. I wanted you to know that I think of you sometimes and wonder how you are doing and hope that you have healed and are ok. I had prayed for you and your passenger that weekend as soon as I learned you both were in such bad shape. A friend of mine was a ER nurse at the time and would keep me posted on your recovery. When I saw you two years later at the courthouse (in the bathroom) I was overcome with emotion. My anger from grief turned into compassion and empathy in that moment because we were all “victims’ and we all suffered (including you and your family). Yes, I do think of my Mom every day and miss her terribly. I was so angry for so long for my loss and for the grief and loss my 10 yr. old experienced upon losing her Grammie after they had become so close. You are about the age I was when I lost my Mom. She had given me so much and so much to my daughter that her spirit truly lives on through us. And for that I am grateful. I’ve wanted to reach out to you before but I guess this was the time. I hope you can receive this well in the spirit of healing and forgiveness.
Take care of you and yours,
Katie McAlevey McMann’

I healed just little more.

If the Innkeeper Had Been a Woman

Would Jesus Have Been Born in a Manger?

Kat McMann

She knew they would have to rest for the night.

He led them on by the stars’ brilliant light.

When those weary two came to Bethlehem

if the innkeeper had been a woman

would Jesus have been born in a manger

or would she have found room for a stranger?

She’d invite them in to her cozy place

and witness relief wash over their face.

Settles them down at her humble table

and shares with them all that’s available.

A jug of milk, warm bread from the oven.

Demonstrating her love and compassion.

She cares for them, as other guests look on.

They are moved by her selfless devotion

to a young couple in a family way

who clearly did not have the means to pay.

As the couple sat with their heads bowed low

they thanked this kind keeper who helped them so.

Their spirits humbled and their voices meek.

The young woman shook. She was cold and weak.

The innkeeper then stoked up the fire

and each kind act began to inspire.

When they saw her take the shawl from her back

each guest opened first their heart then their sack

and sacrificed all that they had to give.

They’d do their part to help this couple live.

The grace they showed continued through the night

The blessed two becoming three by dawn’s light.

I think we all strive to be Earth mothers but so many of us feel like Rainbow moms, most of the time, trying so hard to find that balance.

I think I am naturally a Rainbow Mother and deal with guilt, because of that, daily.
