I’ve spent a couple of days working on the blog for this month. And I am stuck.
I love this month, but my mind just wasn’t focusing on the message I wanted to share.
First, I started with what my childhood was like and how my mother was the best. She had many challenges with my father, yet I always knew that her love was unconditional. She strived along with my grandmother to love me above and beyond all else to make up for the lack of interest and involvment by my father. They were inspiring and an example of the endless love of motherhood. My mother was always my biggest cheerleader. She always made me feel loved, accepted, heard and seen.
Well, that wasn’t working.
I then decided I would focus on the Divine Feminine, the awakening feminine in all of us and embracing who we are with the fullness and appreciation of femininity. The Me,Too movement that advocates that women are important, intelligent and not to be treated as powerless or used is an offspring of the Divine Feminine. There could be no better time. Along with awareness of the Divine Feminine comes the recognition and acknowledgment that we, men and women, are both made up of the feminine and the masculine. Both are important if we are to have the balance, harmony and peace that comes with true relationships.
That wasn’t working for me either.
So, now what? I then decided that I would speak only for myself. Being a mother has been the most important and rewarding thing I have ever done. Has it been perfect? No, just ask my son. It’s definitely been a work in progress. I hope I’ve gained some wisdom with the years. Becoming a mother at 20 meant that we both grew up together. I still remember when I first saw Tim. I remind you that I had my son when there was a hospital nursery, mothers were rationed their babies during the day and I was totally out during his birth. How times have changed! I looked forward to every moment I could hold him, be with him and counted all his fingers and toes. I was in the hospital for almost 5 days! That’s how long ago this was!
Tim has been my son, my teacher, my guide and now my friend in more ways than I can say. He’s always been level headed and focused. And now I get to see him with his own son. My heart is full. Joy oozes from me without measure. I’ve never know such bliss as having a grandson.
May this Mother’s Day be the best ever for you, whether mother, serving as a mother or a dad being both mother and father. May joy always be part of your journey with children from birth to adulthood. May your heart overflow with love and memories of family, no matter what family looks like.
We all have a story. Enjoy yours and keep writing!
