Dear Mom Nobody has it all sorted out, we are all just out here trying. Some days we try hard, and some days we try less, and that’s okay! Please look at your beautiful self in the mirror and repeat after me: “I do enough. I try enough. I am enough.” Lots of love Ruth
Dear Mama Now you have a new name, spelled with a capital M. Hello, and congratulations. 🙂 You have chosen to be a Mama and your child has chosen you as Mama, at an unforgettable time in the world’s history. I say chosen, because I truly believe that we choose each other, that souls have agreements […]
Dear Mom You are possibly stressing about what this new life means for you and your baby. It’s more than 50 days into lockdown… I want to remind you that you are doing an exceptional job during this time. As long as your kids are happy and you are happy. I think for now, that’s […]
Dear Momma Perfecting this thing called motherhood looks different for everyone. Some days it’s planned lessons and home cooked meals and other days it’s 2min noodles, screen time and hiding in the bathroom to have a snack. Breathe. It’s OK. Remember you cannot pour from an empty cup. You’ve got this!
Dear Mom, ‘Doing your best’ will look different every day. On Monday, ‘my best’ was cereal for supper. Some days my ‘best’ is skipping lessons and letting YouTube babysit while I finish my work. You’re parenting in an unprecedented disaster; you make the rules. Give yourself a break. Pandemics don’t come with schedules.
Mammie Jy herinner my, jou liefde omsingel my. Asseblief moenie weg kyk nie. Jou woorde gaan le diep in my, onthou sonder jou sou ek nie hier wees nie. Dankie mammie dankie!
Hey Superwoman, You are your best asset and the best of you is what your kids need. Pour back into yourself now. Have that cup of tea in peace. Have that long warm bath guiltlessly.
There’s no role more essential, especially in the times that we are living in, than motherhood. May you be more to yourself, your children and to our great nation of Mothers in South Africa. Have a love filled day.
Ma…the first word we utter in recognition of our Source in heaven and earth. The land on which life is planted and the vessel from which it is fulfilled. Umsamo, the sacred womb, the universal altar and gateway to heaven. I honour your Divine existence.
Dear sister-mom We have never met but I call you sister, because our womanhood connects us all over the world in many different ways. My heart and spirit reaches out to sit with you, to hold you gently if you need a soft place to rest. You and your beautiful new baby deserve to take […]
