Mother's Day and Self-Love

Dear Women, friends, mothers, sisters, fellow bloggers,

I want to wish you all a Happy Mother's Day, but not the Hallmark way.

Mothering calls forth real emotions, real love, real challenges - it's not for the faint of heart.

Mothering is heartfull, heart felt, heart-song.

Mothering is the toughest job I have ever been called to perform.

Mothering is an answer to a call - someone unborn somewhere wanted to come into the world, at this time, with this mother, with this family, and learn something with You.

Mothering gets very little PR, and no head-hunting agencies are hunting up the Best Executive perks to give to mothers to make their job more attractive.

But without mothers, there would be no children - think of that!

I hope you will all be kinder to yourselves this week, this day, as the new leaves turn from their bright yellow-green to bigger broader green leaves, let some sun shine into your heart.

Let the compassion and loving kindness you give your children be extended to yourself this day, and every day.

Self-love is like oxygen - put some in your tank today!

love and greetings
jenn aka musemother
