Happy Mother's Day Oishi-m mama's!
We appreciate all that this day is about, and salute you as you juggle parenthood, life and work. We celebrate you, a miraculous baby maker, and the multitude of hats that you wear on this journey of life. You manage to swing from the heights of happiness and sometimes to the depths of despair, as each day brings surprises, milestones, challenges and and war wounds that force us to pull on all of our experience to raise our little one's. This is what binds us together, in the massive quilt of motherhood.
These legs have carried babies, walked a baby to sleep, danced the midnight rock-to-sleep lullabyes, multi-tasked cooking dinner with dodging toddler's on the floor, and pushed prams for miles to get wee ones to sleep..
We help them decide which path to take in life, and support their choices no matter what...
...we hold their hands and keep them close,
and lift them up, across the muddy puddles of life.
We guide them through the forks in the road, and lead them towards healthy choices.
But most of all we support eachother through the high's and the low's of motherhood, always trying to turn tears into laughter as we raise our sister's up when they need it most.
We wish you every happiness today. We hope that your heart is bursting with love, your bed is full of family members snuggling together, you receive homemade pressies from kinder/school (another macaroni necklace?) and your cup of tea is enjoyed hot with your eggs on toast. You're doing a brilliant job being a mama bear, and we celebrate you.
