Instantanious Connections

Today a young pregnant woman stuck her head in my room at the salon to say what a great space it was. Within moments we were sharing intimate details of our mother's deaths.   I love to connect instantly with a stranger on such an elevated level. 

Her authenticity and heartfelt pain left me with a deeper appreciation of the human condition and our ability to speak the truth. 

I ache for her deceased mother's missed opportunity to experience her very first precious grandchild and the moment this young lady looks at her newborn and thinks, my mother could never have loved me this much, or could she have?    If present I would go way out on a limb and shout a resounding,   YES, YOU BET SHE DID!
