May is the month for Mothers and so this month I want you to tell us a story about mothers. My mind was running rampant with this one as there’s so many ways to tell this story, for those of us who are mums (or moms!!) and those who are not.
So for those who are mothers, what’s it like for you to be a mother, or a stepmother, or a special person in a child’s life, maybe you are a favourite aunt, a stand in female adult figure, a godmother perhaps. Is there a moment that stands out when you realized just how important your role is – first day home from hospital – the day you held your child crying in your arms – the first time you heard your name uttered “mom” – the first time you felt the love or the frustration or the helplessness.
Maybe you would like to tell the story of your own mother, how she has shaped you, the lessons you have learnt from her, the moments you have shared.
Has there been tragedy, does the thought of the subject bring a tear to your eye and an ache to your heart. Has there been turmoil, not everyone gets on with their mothers, sometimes we are way too much alike.
Are you a grandmother, how has moving to that role been for you. Are you the mother of furbabies, yes they are our family too. This is your story to tell whichever way you want to tell it.
