This is a beautiful haunting parable of hope. Sometimes stories and parables lead us to shores of happy ending but this one has an ending that rings true to how in real life we face suffering and death and find comfort for our loss. The ending of the parable does not depict the mother gaining back her son but knowing that pain is not her’s alone to bear. But I’ll leave the thoughts of how this parable speaks to you on it’s own.
