Click here What is a Mother?
A mother is a heart so full of love
that comfort & tiredness disappear
when her child comes into her bed & lays in her arms in the middle of the night.
A mother is a 24-hour 7-day week commitment
to selflessness & sacrifice,
whose payment is far above money
- a look, a touch, a hug or a smile.
She runs out of steam for moments,
wanting time to stand still, so she can feel like she can fit it all in
but she makes choices, to let go
& her children are her priority
On rare occasions, there is sweet silence.
Snippets of time alone,
to think, to stop, to self-care & refresh
so she is filled up ready for the next joyous adventure.
A Mother is a woman with hormones and feelings.
It can be overwhelming & exhausting & relentless
& so so busy just being….. and it's ok to fall in a blessed heap.
Being real -there's no Superwoman, no super Mum, no perfect Mum. Just women, doing their best in each moment
& that's all any of us can do.
It's a hard gig but it's so worthwhile.
It's so important, probably the most important thing you'll ever do. Bringing up children with love.
Paying attention, consciously, deliberately.
With values, discipline, encouragement & Hope.
Fostering free spirits & Dreamers.
It's so busy right now but it goes by so fast
& you'll really miss this time.
Being a mother is an honour & a privilege
A responsibility to mould and shape our future.
I can't think of anyone better suited than you
my Amazing, fantastic darling friend.
