The most intensitive job

May 11, 2015 admin

We are Mothers,

doing what has to be one of the most intensitive jobs

in The World — and that is not a typo.

It is a new word to describe the experience.

Intensitive.

Whether we carried and the birthed the child we are raising, or not,

we are Mothers and ever-entwined in their life now.

We carry their heart in ours, forever now.

Mothering is beautiful, exasperating, frightening,

heart-breaking, heart-lightening.

Brutal.

And amazing.

Mothering is something else.

There are few words to nail it down.

Because it’s so very intense

to feel so vulnerable,

so very sensitive to,

and responsible for the needs of the heart and life

of another person.

It’s so intense to learn that, at the end of the day,

it’s all about separation.

But this is the way it is.

This is what we do.

We are Mothers.

From our mothers’ hearts to yours, Happy Mother’s Day!
