motherhood is goddesshood

Mother’s Day comes and goes every year, many of us finding ourselves doing the usual flowers and brunch deal. Yet the actual celebration of this day has a lot more significance than Hallmark would like to admit.

It’s worth a click on Wikipedia to read some of the history behind the creation of Mother’s Day, however one thing that sticks out in my mind is how it used to be associated with the honouring of women as goddesses for our physical ability to actually become mothers, which is one of the most powerful forces on earth.

It’s also worth noting that before the Western blitz of the second weekend in May being Mother’s Day, many cultures around the world had and still perform ceremonies that recognize the strength and vitality of motherhood.

Being a mother is of course more than blood and skin deep. I am blessed to have many great friends who have been wonderful maternal influences on my life and whom I see really take care of everyone around them (see my pic below!)

So to all the rockin’ mama’s out there doin’ tha damn thang, nya weh! (thank you!)

Tina and Ariana Lopes who have been amazing mother figures to me.
