The mothers I know and have photographed all share one thing: worry.
- they’re not doing a good job
- they’re not able to give their child what they need
- they’re not perfect
- they’re not enough.
That’s mother’s love. This worry comes from the depth of a mother’s love.
I don’t have children myself, but every mother, mine included, tells me it’s love like they’ve never experienced before. It’s something inexplicable.
When you feel such strong love, when you know you’d do anything for this child, when the child is your world… how can there be anything bigger? How can anything else possibly be better?
MOTHER – THE MOST IMPORTANT
Mothers: I’m proud of all of you. It’s not an easy job, yet you do it, and make it look easy. You’re doing the most important job in the world: raising the next generation. Be proud. Be happy. Encourage and support yourself (and other mothers).
Give yourself time to grow and develop, to relax and restore. You deserve it.
While being a mother is the most important job, it’s also important to remember that underneath it all, there’s still you.
It’s okay to spend time by yourself. It’s okay to pamper yourself. It’s okay to focus on yourself every now and again. Because when you recharge your batteries, you have so much more to give to your child(ren) and others close to you. It’s a gift you give to others when you take care of yourself.
So don’t be shy. Don’t be too modest.
You deserve pampering.
You deserve relaxation.
You deserve you-time.
Take it. And enjoy it.
Happy Mother’s Day!
You make this world a better place. Thank you.
With so much love and appreciation,
