To all you mum's out there (yes I decided to go British), Happy Mother's Day!
You know I never truly appreciated moms until I became one, honestly, I should be ashamed. There is so much time, effort, emotion, and passion in being a mom. Getting up, and giving your all to someone who may no even be grateful or acknowledge that you are being "selfless" to cultivate another human being.
Not only is tiring but it's nerve wrecking. To realize that this little thing, that is place in your care, is your responsibility and they trust you are going to keep them safe. Wow! It just makes me think how much faith we really do have just in one person, the one who cares for us. No, not all of us have had great childhoods, or for that matter parents, but we all have at least on person we do love and trust because they have been there for us. I do say that I am very grateful for mine. She has not only been a great cultivator but a wonderful person to aspire from.
she has pushed me when needed and she has also told me that the person to be is myself and she loves me because of that.
Thank you Mum (mwahaha) for being you. A warrior.
I'd also like to recognize another wonderful mum, I know, my sister. She is not only an overachiever :P but she a stupendous mum of 6..that's right 6 awesome kids. She is up early, caring for her tribe with love, homemade everything, and knowledge. I always thought that a Proverbs 31 woman was an impossible feat, but I was proven wrong when I saw my sister in action. Seriously, she's a bad ass!
I am blessed to have grown up with these women and am encouraged to grow older with them as well. They have seen me in my best and worst and yet they still love me...guess I should keep them around.
So may your day be filled with comfort and may we learn to appreciate the people that love us the most, even if it's not our mums. Because they care enough to stick around. :)
