With Mother’s Day quickly approaching here in Australia, as well as in several other countries around the world, my thoughts turn to my own mother who has just recently turned 70. It seems improbable that the sassy, highly intelligent, super creative, sexy, pioneering-macrobiotic-shop-owning woman that I remember as my mum, is now solidly planted at decade seven in her life! And instead of striding briskly down the street in her eighties-tastic espadrilles like she used to, is now yielding a Gandalf-like staff (which, in truth, it’s more like a stolen single ski which I wouldn’t put past her) for support as she slowly navigates her voluptuous Renoiresque shape, favoring a tender knee.
So to all you mothers and mother figures in the world, and to all the amazing women who fill those roles in your life: Celebrate the mother that you have and that you are: the incredible human being that realises how to share, care and bare herself in a way that facilitates another human being to grow and experience a life filled with love and love filled with life.
Nothing but love to you amazing community and thank you once again for your patience as I navigate how best to share the juicy life lessons that abundantly come my way, whether I like or not!
