When I was young I always dreamt and wished to be in those mythical fairy stories.
Be a healer, a mender, a fighter.
Then motherhood came to me as it has to all such humans. Swiftly and fiercely.
I have felt like I have lost myself to changing diapers, feeding hungry tummies, entertaining the babies.
But it has dawned on me, just now, that I am very much living this dream.
I am a mender
A fierce and fighting mama bear
I am the entertainer, the bard, of my wee one. I weave beautiful, magical stories to tickle the imagination and wonder only small children have.
I teach him to listen to the wind as it winds through the trees and the leaves.
I teach him to see and respect the woodland creatures.
I teach him to care for the earth and care for the creatures around him.
I have been gifted the most magical position of all. Mother.
