Reblogging this poem I wrote and blogged for all mothers a long, long time ago. Today in the UK it is Mother’s Day. This Sunday, I’m celebrating and saluting all mothers, no matter where you are in the world. I feel blessed, I have a British and European day to celebrate motherhood! If you were celebrating with me today, I hope you have had a wonderful day.
She, who is she? Is she me or you? If not you then she is who? All I know is she always says whatever it is I need to do …. trust me I’ll do. No matter the weather, no matter the stress her attitude is always “can do.”
Times get tough, troubled and unsettled waters maybe ahead, but does that make her see red? Let me ask you a question, if you could do it all again in life would you? What would you seek to go back and re-do? You have a long list! Wow, my point, you have missed. Each experience is either a lesson, or blessing in disguise. Wrapped up in drama, or feeling like there’s no light at the end of the tunnel. But If you never travelled that road of drama, would you be able to hold your head this high?
Read between the lines you’re much better, you’re like titanium, and much more refined after all that drama you left behind. You’re now one of a kind, so leave those bitter memories behind.
Each day, look in the mirror and figure out what it is you must do, or what you want to do? What’s your next move?
Never be bitter or never be so unkind to yourself, so that you can’t read between the lines.
Gather your strength, keep your goals in mind, never look behind. I promise you with this wind under your wings you’ll fly. Now you must reach for the sky. Some days will be hard, you have the kids, work, school, dinner to make, cleaning, the list never ends and the worst bit – everyone has their demands of you! You’ll want to scream hold up! What more do you want me to fucking do? Huh? But remember it’s your strength,
That will see you through. So let me ask you again who is she? Is she me? Is she you? Oh she is you! Then get out there and do what you need to do. Remember Proverbs 31:25 now who is she?? Is she you?… Yeah, that’s what I thought, I knew you had it in you.
High five, keep going and do what you need to do.
I just felt like writing. Salute to all the mothers, carers, breadwinners, goal makers and hard workers out there!
