HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY
To all the women.
Because all women have mothered someone at some point in their life, it’s just what we do.
We care, we nurture, we mother.
For the mothers who are knee deep in family life, this is your day to feel like a queen, please do. It’s entirely deserved and no one needs a day of pampering more. The chores can wait, be rested.
For the mothers who have lost children, this day is another on your ‘harder’ calendar and for that I send you love, you are so very brave.
To the women who no longer have their mother, this day is a heart-breaking reminder of an overwhelming grief. Your mother would want this day to be a time to say her sayings, cook her favourite meal and play her favourite songs. So, please don’t avoid that today. I know it hurts but it will help the heal.
To the women who have not made it into motherhood, who so desperately want to. This day is tough, there is nothing you want more than a 3 am wake up and a hand drawn card full of love.
Please take today to acknowledge all the hard work and energy you have put into your endeavours. I see the hole in your heart. I see you and I want you to know you’re a warrior of love and you deserve so much joy in life. Please let it in.
To the women who mother another child, you are a glorious example of humanity and love, my heart fills to bursting just to witness the gift you give. Thank you.
To the women who feel they have not had that maternal love they so crave, please forgive. You need your heart whole to make so much love that the future outweighs the past. It starts with you. You deserve it, make it so.
To the women,
ALL the women.
We mother like no other.
