Being Mom in the Month of May

Welcome to the toughest, most rewarding job you’ll ever have.

Last night I woke up to my son’s cry. I comforted him for hours. My back is aching today. Yesturday he wanted to paint. I amused him with finger paint. It’s now stained in the cracks of our hardwood floor. Tonight’s pleas to read those 5 books before bedtime might come with hesitation on my part but end with 25 gentle kisses and hugs and his love in return.

In Melissa Joan Hart’s words on how motherhood has changed her, “I feel much more run down and have a lot less time for the simple things like reading a book and dinner with friends. But being a mom is the most rewarding thing in the world. Holding a cold, metallic statue will never fulfill you the way your child’s little smile will.”

Take a step back and look at the big picture of motherhood and all the joy it brings.

The month of may is a reminder of May flowers, the spring breeze and the hope of summer warmth. It’s a month that promises to lift the winter dull and bring green goodness.

The toughest and most rewarding time in my life came in the month of May. The deepest pain of loosing my sister Christine and later nearly my own was transformed by a micracle, a gift of new life. My beautiful son Madac was born in the month of May. In May we celebrate our mothers, ourselves, life and the joy of a new beginning. It’s Spring afterall.

Imagine looking down on your life. What joy can you see? Try holding on to that moment as you move through your day.

Yesterday started with 5 minutes of prayer on my back deck followed by another 10 minutes of watering my thirsty flowers around the yard. I avoided the inside of my home because it was really overwhelming to think about the hours of housework that needed my attention. I was so overwhelmed by the clutter, the filth, the toppled up dishes, the insanity of my fridge and the hazy space of each room.

It was when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis another few months later that my holistic nutritionist, mentor and friend suggested I eat nutrient dense, local, free-range meats three times daily. Our immune system, our red blood cells, our thyroid and adrenals are made up of protein that form anti-bodies to help fight infections, increase circulation, and make hormones.

2/3 cup of coconut oil 1 cup local maple sugar 1 egg1 1/4 cup of spelt or rice flour 1 cup rolled oats1/2 cup of coconut1 tsp of aluminum free baking powder1 tsp of aluminum free baking soda1 cup of dried black currants. I like to throw a handful of currants in salads, served over a stew, in a homemade sprouted trail mix and of course in, cookie batter. Black currants, however, are sweet and have just the right texture for my palate.
