We’ve been working with a lot of mums lately and I’ve been reminded how tough it was when I first became a Mum when Timmy was born and for the year following. I felt that who I was had changed, and who I knew myself to be was pushed aside to be who HE needed me to be. At times I wondered how other mums did it without the help of their partners, their own mums and their girl friends supporting and encouraging them along the journey.
Everyone told me ‘this is just a phase’, ‘this too will pass’, ‘you’ll feel like yourself soon’, ‘enjoy these precious moments as before you know it they’ll be too big to hold’ (when your arm aches from holding him from 3am – 11am!) when all I wanted to do was sleep for more than 3 hour blocks and shower without my background music being a screaming baby! But what I’ve learnt so far is that all this pressure and all this change is like the creation of a diamond. Pressure, as painful as it is, is necessary to transform into something beautiful.
So many mums do not have the revelation for themselves yet and we want to remind them that they are beautiful and valuable no matter how they feel or the season of life that they are in. We would love to bless a mum as we know how tough it is and how at times we devalue ourselves for the sake of our families.
