13 May A Thank You to Mothers..
A thank you to Mothers..
Nearly half of this wonderful world is made up of mothers; they brought us to this world and we love them!
It feels only natural & fitting to take the thyme to send a big, warm, loving THANK-YOU to these beautiful feminine goddesses, who hold us, raise us, and love us through this weird and wonderful human experience. Being a mother of ducklings is sometimes a thankless, seemingly endless role of giving & nurturing, being a holder-of-space, and keeper-of-peace. It’s no doubt the most awesome role in the world to play (we’re definitely not biased..), but we do need to be reminded that we all need someone to lean on from time to time. Today’s Mum’s day off; okay!
The journey into motherhood is also an initiation into a new life phase. A mother is birthing a child, but she is also birthing herSelf, stepping into and up to herSelf. It is a rite of passage that many women walk through, and like any rite of passage it involves a birthing and a dying. She is letting go of her role as a Maiden, and becoming a Mother. This is a huge process, and there’s no going back from it. She deserves a day (at least!) of gratitude for such a brave choice, and selfless responsibility.
So to all those brave mothers & to-be-mothers; you are a blessing! Few are as Self-sacrificing as you..
