My Many Mothers Day

March 13th, 2021 by Kat Kingsley-Hughes

I’m thinking about Mother’s Day (tomorrow in the UK) and this is my first without my lovely Mum. My heart is breaking a little bit but it’s also full. She and I found a space in those last years where we could really understand one another. All the difficulties were let go. We saw each other as people or as much as that is possible between parent and child.

Tomorrow I will miss her and honour her. But I will also be honouring all those other mothers who taught me so much and nurtured me so much.

It took a village to get me to where I am and I am grateful to all who have raised me and re-mothered me, made safe space for me to soothe my trauma. Those other mothers in my memory include my friend’s mothers, mothers in law, wise friends, my sister in law, so many mentors, teachers and therapists. My heart feels full to burst as I reflect on those who guided me 💜

Happy My Many Mother’s Day! Thank you 🙇‍♀️💕
