INSPIRING STORY OF THE WEEK: Of Mothers and Other Demons

INSPIRING STORY OF THE WEEK

OF MOTHERS AND OTHER DEMONS

by Lisa St. John

Winner #Tales2Inspire #Inspiring Story


This inspiring story if part monologue, part societal comment. We’re not likely to forget the storms in our past. 

But Lisa is ready to focus on the sunshine.


Of Mothers and Other Demons is a piece about a haunting past and a hopeful future. The author questions herself as a daughter, mother and now as a grandmother. Simultaneously, she  ruminates on the current state of society. 

While on a road trip to Maine with her son and his family, she relives her own mother’s betrayal. Eventually she decides that her past cannot be the main force of her future. As she recalls recent events of cruelty  in our world,  she wonders at the possibility of beauty and kindness, forgiveness and hope.

Then, on a personal note, she asks herself, “What does it mean to be a good mother?”  She wonders if  we make up for our faults by being a good grandmother? Shaken out of her reverie by her two beautiful grandchildren, she realizes that the “now-ness” of children is where her focus will be. Although her late husband can’t be with her in the “generational way back,” she understands that the way to move forward is to have faith in the future.
