Thinking of the generations of mothers... past, present and future... on this mother's day ....
buttered toast and clothes warmed by the fire on a winter’s morning
the pain of adolescence felt
the posy of flowers at my bedside as I nurse a broken heart
long distance phone calls to share news of adventures
overwhelming love for my precious newborn
exhaustion at the mindless mess of toys and washing
unspoken pain at the taunts you feel
superhuman strength as I reach to protect you
forgiveness for the harsh words in rage
confusion at what you ask of me
acceptance of who you are becoming
laughter in those silly moments of dancing after dinner
tears of grief as you walk out the door to meet the world
growth and re-discovery as the house quietens
laughter and adventure with my love
caring for those who cared for me
cups of tea
mothers teach us how to be
Wishing everyone a happy mother's day...
