Maybe because it's Mother's Day on the weekend, I've been thinking about all of the hard-working Mum's out there caught up in their own Dance of Motherhood. They swing to their own beat, finding a rhythm that suits them and their family.
The Mother with pre-schoolers, lacking sleep.
The Mother raising the autistic child.
The Single Mother.
The Mother who's husband is ill.
The Mother without a Mother.
The Mother who works outside of the home and in.
What happens if we lose our rhythm? Fail to dance to the beat in our head? Lose time?
Would things go on, unchanged? With someone else stepping in to do The Dance?
Would our children know any different or even realise that we have stopped Dancing? Just for a while?
How fast should we Dance? Or how slow? Why is it so hard to maintain a constant rhythm that suits the family?
|This Mother: Me.|
This weekend be kind to the mum's that cross your path...they are finding their own rhythm to the beat in their head, just like you are now or your own mother did with you.
