As I am with everything, I’m a little behind schedule in writing this blog post. I didn’t even get to the last two posts I wanted to write- one of which was supposed to be about strong women. When thinking about the topic, I connected with a few words that capture part of what being a strong woman means to me: “To be a woman is to be unapologetically resilient despite everything.” As women we have so many challenges and incredible obstacles to face just to be comfortable in our own skin and our own bodies. And the more roles we take on, the more complex and sometimes difficult it can be to just be. Insert “mother” for woman in that sentence and you might see what I mean. The following is just a short tidbit about my experience as a mother. As for the challenges I have faced, in this post I only cover maybe the tip-top of the iceberg with the experience of son’s birth. I hope however, that this post, meager as it may be, might give you reason to pause and contemplate your own role as a woman, as a mom, or that of someone you are close to.
Happy belated Mother’s Day to all of you, mother or not.️Read More
