Mothers and Images

As Mother’s Day approaches and we contemplate getting breakfast in bed, a  dinner out, or a hand made card, it is useful to reflect on where we are and where we’ve been. It is good to give ourselves a lot of credit for all that we do and have done  for our children to counteract all those times when we feel that we are not doing well enough.  We wonder if we are spending or have spent (even if we have adult children) too much time just trying to get through the day (and sometimes the next 10 minutes) and not enough time creating meaningful experiences that help our children thrive.   Oftentimes, we compare ourselves to some sort of perfect parent who never struggles to just get through the day, or until her child is in bed at night, or is toilet trained, or graduates from high school.
