When my mom became a grandmother, her world changed forever.-
There is something about giving love unconditionally to a small being and allowing that being to blossom.
Mothers, aunts, grandmothers everywhere today will be honored this weekend for mothers day.
Yet I say to all - why one day? Why not everyday?
Why wait for one special day to tell her that you care for her?
My appreciation for my mother grew because I finally understood the task that had been entrusted to me.
I had respect for mothers everywhere.
We are given the task of raising a human being and that is a daring adventure.
It grows, it becomes a living being and it is part of us.
And to see God's creation - a tiny little being - vulnerable that has been entrusted to our care.
we watch as the being grows, pouring all our love, all our energy into making the child strong, bold, and couageous enough to face the world.
we fight to ensure there is stability in our child's lives.
we fight so that our children's needs are met financially and socially.
we fight so that our children have a sense of security.
Even the most timid person will become a lion if she feels her children are in danger, that is the power of a mother.
I find that the task never ends.
Our child could be 20, 30, 45, 65, 70, and we will always be a mother.
A mother brings us life in this world
holding us, caressing us, nurturing us
till we are strong enough to walk on our feet.
A mother is like a tigress, always there to defend us when we are in danger
A mother can also be our critic and often times will tell us things no one wants to hear.
A mother also has to learn and watch their child fall and get up so they can be their own person..
That is such a difficult lesson -
I lack patience and yet being a mom - it has taught me patience.
The most difficult thing for a mother sometimes is watching their child in pain and not being able to help them with it - it is one of life's biggest lessons.
A mother is all that and more.
Once a mother, always a mother.
The job never ends. It is 24/7 and that role stays with you till eternity.
Our biggest tasks as mothers is living true to our True Selves - and allowing that to flourish. By being that, we allow our children's authenticity to flourish.
