Did you know the origin of Mother’s Day is pretty old?
It dates back to the ancient Greeks and Roman times when mums were celebrated in several festivities, mostly connected to fertility goddesses. And like many traditions and festivities, Mothering Sunday began with a religious purpose. And over the years it became the day to show love, gratitude and appreciation to all the wonderful mums everywhere, through acts of kindness and the giving of a little gift or flowers.
But mums should be valued and celebrate every day, not just on Mother’s Day.
So today this post is for everyone of you! Maybe you read it already on my Instagram feed . . .
To all of you wonderful mums who are doing an amazing job. Actually this year, more than ever you have been the rock of your family, the shining star 🌟
I know this is a special day for many but also a sadder one for others.
But this is for all of us, for the new mums that are figuring out what to do, for those who are trying for a baby, for those who can’t wait to meet their baby, for those who don’t have the privilege of having a mother still around, for those who had to experience the loss of a baby, for those who have been adopted or have an adopted child, for those who can’t have a baby, for those who are far away from their mother or from their children . . . you are equally a fantastic mum ❤️
One day a year is certainly not enough to celebrate all the incredible work a mum does . . . You are brilliant!

I gathered some of my favourite photos of the past year in this little video. If you like them and want to have similar memories with your and you baby I can help you. You can find more information on my website.
I want to leave you with this poem by Laura Silvana Aversano.
I’m not sure how I stumbled across but I thought it was beautiful!
“The womb we carry has embraced a thousand souls within, souls which have crossed generations into the world of spirit and those souls which have yet to be born. We do not just carry our own seeds to fertilize, we carry the seeds of many. The child that is borne unto us belongs as much to us as it does to each member of the ‘tribe’ we are connected with. We all become mothers, whether or not we actually have children in this lifetime. And we all are given the opportunity to impart the feminine aspects of the Divine in whichever ways we are called to serve. We all share the same mother, through lineages, parallel realities, prior incarnations, and the love of the Creator. The Divine Feminine is the most magical evolutionary aspect of the Creator, born to receive both God and Goddess, born to impart both God and Goddess in all realms of existence. We are the Sanctuary upon which the Divine rests and then when called to, pours forth into this wayward world seeds of healing and grace personified. We are truth embodied in Creation. In honour of the Divine Feminine, may our wombs be joyous, peaceful and free.
And in honour of my own mother Marie, I couldn’t have asked for a better mother to nourish me in her womb and bring me into a world where I could love and be loved.”
