When a woman becomes a mom, her ego takes a back seat. The sleeplessness and intense workload make mothering the ultimate practice of selflessness.
As children grow, the mother learns the fine balance of closeness and surrender. With developmental milestones, new joys and challenges come and the mother realizes the true impermanence of life.
Sooner than expected, the child is independent and starting a new life on it's own. Now the mother has the task of truly letting go and keeping faith, while remaining a pillar of support and acceptance.
Each stage of mothering brings experiences to both break a woman down, while simultaneously making her love undeniably stronger.
