Motherhood is, without doubt, the most abundant life lesson and natural role that a woman will ever have in her lifetime. It is knighthood of sorts in many ways!
The moment a child is placed in your care for safe-keeping, the universe levels the playing field and a mother is born simultaneously. An infant requires nurturing of both body and soul to flourish just as a caregiver is moulded with lessons of patience, understanding and humility.
Motherhood announces herself loudly and clearly when she enters the world. She arrives as the most intimate and close friend - yet, she is an uncertain stranger who you will only come to know over time.
Motherhood doesn’t arrive with a sparkly mommy manual in her handbag for a new mom; rather she enters with a non-refundable, lifetime guarantee of Love, Pride, Embarrassment, Frustration, Happiness, Anger, Guilt, Vulnerability, Inadequacy and Fulfillment. Motherhood is a roller-coaster of emotion with some days enjoying just a few of the ratifying emotions mentioned above and other days teeming with all of those raw feelings thrust into one! It is an intense up-and-down, giddy, side-to-side; skull-numbing experience and certainly, any mother can wear her Mommy Cap or T-shirt with pride!
On a calmer note, the ultimate metaphor for Motherhood is being the Tree of Life within a family.
