TO THE MUM

Advertisements

TO THE MUM who breastfed religiously, carrying on through infections and so many difficulties. Giving of themselves physically, so completely, for as long as they possibly could. You’re amazing. An inspiration. Your child will benefit forever from your care.

TO THE MUM who bottle-fed, knowing that this decision was the best for you physically, mentally and emotionally, realising that this understanding will ultimately benefit your child and your whole family. You’re amazing. An inspiration. Your child will learn from you to trust their instincts and choose their own path.

TO THE MUM who works every hour god sends to build a home and a future for your family. Who worries with every day that passes, whether she is giving enough of her time to her children. You’re amazing. An inspiration. Your work ethic and your selflessness will live on in the humans you have made.

TO THE MUM who sacrifices her financial independence and perhaps some of the finer things in life to stay at home and spend as much time as you possibly can with your children. You’re amazing. An inspiration. They may not realise it until they have children of their own but one day, your kids will look back and be amazed at just how much you gave.

TO THE MUM who gave up all of her favourite vices to prepare her body for the miracle of childbirth, who injected herself daily and hoped and prayed for that little life to spark within you. You’re amazing. An inspiration. Whether or not your efforts are rewarded with the family you dream of, you have done everything in your power to be a Mother. Never forget how wonderful that is. You have so much to give. Never give up giving it, in one way or another.

TO THE MUM who punished herself for taking too long to bond with the beautiful person she bore. Who shuddered in the dark of the night when she realised the maternal feelings were just not there. You’re amazing. An inspiration. You fought against the demon hormones which were attacking your very soul and you won. You are a warrior. Your children will be stronger for your honesty and your journey.

TO THE MUM who is doing this on her own. Wishing she had a team-mate, a partner in crime, to make everything feel alright when it seems to be oh so very wrong. Bearing the weight of it all on only one small pair of shoulders. You’re amazing. An inspiration. Your children will never stop being in awe of how you managed all of this on your own. Keep pedalling under water, your time will come, your rewards will be in sight soon.

TO THE MUM who right now, at this very moment, is reading this and feeling like she has somehow failed. You have not. You are exhausted. Give time time. Children do not come with a rule book and each child is as unique as a snowflake or a finger-print. They are not robots waiting to be programmed, they are people. Complicated, wonderful little people.

You will work it out. It is okay (if not necessary) to NOT BE OKAY sometimes.
Admit it, ask for help. It is NOT a failure, it is a must.

We are all in this together.

Pass it on,

Happy Mother’s Day to each and every one of you…you’re simply amazing.
