How have you defined yourself as a mother? Is something else possible that would allow you to be even greater than you ever thought possible?
Another Mother’s Day has just passed. During the day, I came across this Face Book post, “A mother is selfless and sacrifices her life for her children.” I can identify with a time in my life that I thought that was true, raising my 3 sons and 2 step-children. My own mother was an example of this. However, today I find this quote and many others that try to define motherhood (and fatherhood for that matter too) to be very unsettling. In all fairness, what this quote may be referring to, is that a mother is willing to put her life aside for a moment so that she can offer time and energy to her children. However, this is not how it is always received. A moment is quite different than living this 24/7. And can have quite devastating effects.
Several ideas come up with this that many parents may find beneficial if they too wonder about similar quotes and definitions.
