Fanning the fire midweek, we are tossing you a spontaneous quote, question, or conundrum related to Monday’s post. We invite you to riff on this prompt or share a story—heartbreaking or hilarious—to spark further conversation about the path of motherhood.

Searching for some inspiring words on protection, I came across this from Clarissa Pinkola Estes’ recent book Untie the Strong Woman: Blessed Mother’s Immaculate Love for the Wild Soul.

This is the short version of what’s known as the Blessing of Guadelupe:

“Have you forgotten?
I am your mother.
You are not alone.
You are under my protection.”

Amazing to think that we are always being watched over, always protected, as Jordan is in this photo…

Do you have an experience of divine protection that you would like to share?
