Happy Mother's Day!!
May today be a day where you feel loved, appreciated and filled with hugs and kisses for all you've done and continue to do for your most precious gifts. I've already shed some tears today thinking about the life changing impact becoming a mother has been for me. On today's very special day dedicated to all mothers, I share this poem of reflection from Dr. Shefali Tsbary:
-The Gift -
May you be blessed with a child ....
Who defies you
So you learn to release control,
With one who doesn't listen
So you learn to tune in,
With one who loves to procrastinate
So you learn the beauty of stillness,
With one who forgets things
So you learn to let go of attachments,
With one who is extra-sensitive
So you learn to be grounded,
With one who is inattentive
So you learn to be focused,
With one who dares to rebel
So you learn to think outside the box,
With one who feels afraid
So you learn to trust the universe.
May you be blessed with a child ...
Who teaches you
That it is never about them
And all about you.
From one mom to another,
