May the Fruit of the Womb Rejoice

Standard

Happy Mother’s Day! May the sun shine on Mother Earth and may the light of life shine on mothers everywhere :) Shoutout to my own mother, who is an extremely wonderful and hard-working woman! She doesn’t even GET a mother’s day because she has to work all day and night. I hope she knows that she’s incredibly loved <3 She’s certainly been through a lot trying to raise me and my siblings – I know I didn’t make it easy on her, especially through my teenage years. We had a lot of heart-to-heart talks through it all, though, and fortunately our relationship has strengthened a lot since I’ve gotten a bit more mature ;) She’s a strong, caring, loving, listening, and patient woman, and well-loved by everyone who knows her. If I grow up to be half as wonderful as she is, I’d be pretty proud.

To all those mothers out there….rock on, you’re a badass woman. I know I couldn’t be a mother, at least not in this stage of my life. It’s easy to mess up, takes waaaaay too much patience, and is a full-time job. Truth is, I’m probably just too selfish :P but that’s okay, because it’s a good excuse for not having kids. No one’s gonna argue with “well, I really just don’t want to spend all my time raising a kid – I’ve got other priorities.” It implies that I wouldn’t properly take care of a child if I did have one. And that’s not true, of course, but it keeps people off my back about it ;)

Anyway, this is supposed to be about mothers, not about how I don’t want to be one.  So all you kids out there, do somethin’ special for your momma today. Even if you think she sucks (and even if she does), she was a huge part of the reason you’re alive in this beautiful world. THAT, if nothing else, deserves appreciation.

 

*note* travel updates coming soon! I just need some time to sit down, breathe, and put my experiences into words. love and peace ^_^

About claireaudient

North Carolina girl, born and raised, though now I consider Vermont to be home as well. I guess you could say I'm a migrant gypsy farmer, if you were prone to saying such things. I've played the whole society game; I've been to three different colleges, have an Associate's Degree (in Liberal Studies, or something like that), and have worked more restaurant jobs than I care to admit. Through a curious series of events, however, I've formed a different perspective on what life means to me. Instead of slaving away at a job I hate to eke out a mediocre life staring at a shiny screen, I'm living out my dream to travel while learning organic farming and sustainability practices. It's not always easy, but leaving the comforts of routine to experience the wonders of the universe was a choice I will never regret. <3
