Motherhood - this Mama Bear knew, felt that her baby cub was in trouble. She showed up, just in time to ward off impending doom. I feel like that Mama bear some times - because I know, and I feel, and I sense, and I show up to save them. And at times they welcome my saving, and they nestle in my arms, snuggle under my chin - cry softly, tears of relief and love. And at times I am screaming to them, "DANGER, DANGER, DANGER"!! And they turn away from me and head straight toward the harm, the ill-intent I wince and cover my eyes, as I hold on to my heart, and pray they find their way through the storm.
This video of the Mama and her cub together is SO beautiful to me. I felt it so strongly - the love, the protection, the strength, the relief, the promise. Ah, motherhood.
