Motherhood should come with...

Linking up with Gypsy Mama's blog 5 minute Friday : Motherhood Should Come with....
  • Got five minutes? Let’s write. Let’s write in shades of real and true and unscripted.
  • Let’s just write and not worry if it’s just right or not.

Write for 5 minutes flat for pure unedited love of the written word.


Love, joy, instructions, patience?  How do we fill that in? We need them all but maybe because of where I am today I would say understanding.  Understanding for each person around and affected by motherhood.  As mother we know that there is change, a growth within us towards ourselves and for those that know us.  Husbands do not seem to go through this ever so quick in your face change so we need understanding.  We need understanding on both sides, me to him and him to me.  Understanding towards the kids as we were them once, making our parents late because we thought putting a shirt on a teddy bear was important.  I do not remember trying to make my parents late on purpose or even them getting on to me to hurry so with that I have to understand that the three kids before me are not doing anything on purpose.  I do not understand motherhood yet except that I love my kids with all my heart.  I understand that this love I have for them overtakes any other emotion I may experience as ‘what happened to life before kids’ or ‘why is this hard’.  I understand that motherhood is important as I learned so much from my mother who gave me tools to keep my house together.  Even in understanding we may not understand so we just need to trust.  Who do we trust? Each other Motherhood is a full world with many parts that could use understanding in each.  Let us understand through love as love conquers all!
