Happy mothers day to you.
Happy mothers day if this day leaves you feeling joy and gratitude for this role you have with your little one(s).
Happy mothers day if this day has you feeling appreciated, energized and seen by others in your life.
Happy mothers day if during this day you feel in awe and humbled by your matrilineal line and feel inspired and honoured to be one of many women who have come before you in your family.
Happy mothers day even if…
Happy mothers day even if this day leaves you feeling disappointed, unappreciated and unseen.
Happy mothers day even if this day just seems like any other day, filled with diapers, snack requests, dishes and laundry.
Happy mothers day even if you feel the deep ache of longing to hold a baby or child in your arms who isn’t here.
Happy mothers day even if you feel the longing for connection with your own mother or grandmothers who aren’t physically or emotionally near or available.
Happy mothers day even if you are feeling burnt out, exhausted and like you’re running on fumes.
Happy mothers day even if you are mothering alone today without a partner to help your kids celebrate you.
Happy mothers day even if your children are with their father today and you’re sitting with the empty feeling in your home wishing they were with you.
Happy mothers day to you beautiful mother.
Thank you for showing up for your children.
For embracing this important job of caring for and nurturing the next generation.
For learning how to support yourself during this intense season so that you can better show up for your kids.
For being that loving presence for your family.
I see you, appreciate you and honour you today.
