Dear Lovely Ones,
Mother’s Day is a special day for so many reasons and rightly so the world stops and takes a pause to recognise these wonderful souls.
Women need to be acknowledged for all the work they do taking care of families and the outpouring of energy and giving they do on a daily basis.
I think mothers of this generation need extra acknowledgment.
More than ever, mothers are giving on a daily basis to their children, partners, jobs, and communities and creating an environment of love and safety.
On a micro level, they are not only taking care of what the family eats, whether they have clean clothes or not, whether that flight is booked or the health insurance has been paid, but they are also scanning the best remedy when you are sick and they are trying to get everyone out the door on time. Most importantly, they are loving, nurturing, and shaping little ones that will go on to make this world a better place and maybe take a place in history. They teach valuable lessons such as compassion and confidence and model values to us.
How often have you heard a story of a famous musician or writer (fill in the blank) and it was his mother that believed in their child enough to find a way to pay for the lessons or to foster their talent?
Most of this they do before they get dressed to go and do a full day’s work of their own!
On a macro level, they are also taking care of the bigger picture, they are the dream builders, wanting their children to grow up in a better world.
It’s the women who often drive change outside of the house, who have their eye on things and often make big sacrifices for their children so they can have a better future. I believe it’s the Mothers of this generation who will create true change, the love and care they have for their children motivates them to take action, stand up for what they believe in, and say no when they mean no.
They are the ones that advocate for better health, equal rights, saving our planet, and child protection and it’s this ‘lion mother’ energy that the world needs right now. The beautiful mix of the feminine with the fierceness that only a mother protecting her young ones has. It’s that passionate mixture of love, energy, and protection that flows through mothers and creates big changes not only in homes but in the world.
Why do they do it? Because they love you.
I know there are men out there too who have the caretaker role and I send you big love too.
Each Mother’s Day, I create a little gift for Mothers to help put back a little of the love and energy that always needs replacing.
How can we do that? A Mother will tell you with love, foot massages, and someone else cooking the dinner! I think you can do so many things for your Mother that bring beauty and peace into her life.
