On this Mother’s Day…
Let us remember to honour and hold space for those
Who long to be mothers
Who cannot, in the way they envisioned, be mothers
Who have experienced devastating loss as mothers
Who have gained more than they ever thought imaginable as mothers
Who have broken down on their journey as mothers
Who enjoy every single moment as mothers
Who have stepped in as mothers
Who have had to step away as mothers
Who walk alongside mothers
Judge as mothers
Who accept our own imperfection as mothers
Who strive for our best as mothers
We are all doing our best.
You are doing your best.
I am doing my best.
