‘To be a mother is an honour. To experience a love like no other, to nurse, educate, comfort, discipline, taxi, feed, council, protect, a boy and to give him a brother, To be a domestic goddess and lover, to sacrifice time spent with each other, is precious, beautiful, rewarding, frustrating, and very, very hard work!’ – my own words
To all the mothers in my life especially my mother who is busy renovating a house in overalls, with paint all over her face and my sister who for the second year in a row, is in hospital nursing a very sick baby. You are brilliant human beings.
To the new mothers who have just realised how much it is possible to love a person, Congratulations.
To the seasoned Mothers, Grandmothers and Great Grandmothers I would love to hear your precious stories.
