A teenager tells her mother she’s pregnant
How will her mother respond?
There are many possibilities…
The mother looked deeply into her daughters’ eyes
Enfolded her in a hug
Nothing was said for a long time as they held each other.
In that moment, I saw how possible it is
To be the kind of person that,
Even when one she loves
Invokes deep fear within her,
She doesn’t think first of her own fears, beliefs, expectations or conditions
But bypasses them to see what her loved one needs.
What a momentous moment.
