Mother’s Day in Peru

Today my thoughts are with the women in Santa Monica prison.  I am thinking of our girls who are not with their families today, while other people are able to celebrate Mother’s Day.  I think of one lady, whose son has always blamed her for being away from him as he has grown up and wants nothing to do with her now…..I think of another lady with 5 children who were in the care of her husband and sister, though sadly now they have got together and the children are being raised by them…..I think of yet another lady who wanted to get married and have a family, yet being taken meant those dreams were destroyed….And the one who has told her Mum not to come and visit her anymore because the journey is long and costly and she is elderly now…..There are so many stories I could tell….The pain of a mother, or a woman who would have loved to have been one….That is understood across cultures…
