A Psychic Archetype of Caregivers: Mothers
As with anything new there is a learning curve and one has to have a sense of humor to deal with 2AM feedings, diapers, and interrupted sleep. However, the upside is having bonding moments nursing the baby in the quiet of the night knowing that the child is so deeply in tune with the mother’s heart and feeling grateful for the two of being one spirit.
A downside for many mothers out there: taking care of the individual being. A problem that many moms fall into is not seeing themselves as an individual. Their identification gets swallowed up in being the mom, the PTA member, the sports mom, the disciplinarian, the teacher, etc. It is a fact of the role and most would say they are guilty of letting their world get turned around for their family.
Motherhood is a Balancing Act
It is a thankless job for about 364 days but that one day, Mother’s Day. It is THE Day of Honor for all the trappings: flowers, candy, homemade gifts, and breakfasts in bed from children that love, cherish, and respect their mommies. That sense of oneness, unconditional love that moms give out in all that they do is returned a thousand-fold feels like a bonus check for a job well done!
Enjoy every moment of your Mother’s Day! You deserve and earned it for being the BEST caregiver to the most important people in the world: your family.
Have a great day!
