"Mothers and their children are in a category all their own. There's no bond so strong in the entire world. No love so instantaneous and forgiving."

~Gail Tsukiyama

Motherhood is not easy! The task is fraught with uncertainty, anxiety, and overwhelming pressure from all sides of what is the 'right way' to parent. Through all this, motherhood is filled with joy and love! It creates a special relationship and bond with another soul that is like no other.

This week I had a great conversation with a friend on how our relationship to our parents change as we become more spiritually mature. In our minds we have the idea of the perfect mother. The mother who loves unconditionally, who is always present and available, who supports us in all our endeavors. It's no surprise our actual parents fall short of this ideal.
