Mothering… it’s a fearsome thing. Being a mother, wanting to be a mother, being a mother of a mother, being a mother without a child to hold, being a mother hearing you aren’t my “real” mother. Mothering can be hard. There is no difficult quite like being a mother. But then again, there is no joy quite like being a mother.
I am an adoptive mother, with a special set of joys and difficult. I really appreciate the quote in the photo, I think it catches the swirl of emotions around this day for those of us raising children we didn’t give birth to.
I enjoyed a quote by Sally Clarkson recently: “Sometimes the most spiritual thing a mother can do is rest”. We are all about rest here. And I think she is right. So, if you are a mother – of any kind listed above – enjoy the day set aside for you this weekend and rest!!
