Check out this wonderful piece by Mary Cleary Kiely at uscatholic.org. Kiely, a mother of three, reflects on repairing a troubled early relationship with her father, and how her image of God rose from those same ashes. About her spiritual role as a parent, she says:
Knowing that human love and human effort will never be enough on their own, I still want to be the best mirror that I can of a God who came to be like us before he commissioned us to try to be like him. All of us look for God in human form, and we make and break images of God for each other every day.
