I've written a lot about how Mothering has transformed me. It has stretched me to some pretty challenging - yet joyous - places that I am forever grateful for. I bumped into this during some reading time today.
"When you are "in the fire," it is sometimes hard to recognize the value of what you are learning. But the day-by-day refining process, the problem solving, crisis resolution, mental stretching, mess clean-ups, sleep deprivation, and loving more than you ever thought possible truly makes you into a smart, aware, beautifully refined individual. The great secret is appreciating the person you are becoming through your trials." Linda Eyre
I look forward to tomorrow and the next day and the next. I look forward to pressing on in my profession - Mothering - and growing more and more each day.
I absolutely love being a Mother, and I am grateful for the growth I've experienced (and will continue to experience) on my Mothering journey.
