Today’s woman is multi-faceted. She can be a wife, daughter, sister, aunt, mother and grandmother. As a mum, she juggles her life with raising children, running a home, work or study. As a grandmother, she often plays an important role in looking-after her grandchildren. For these women, mothering is a serious responsibility and a treasured privilege. While it’s a demanding life, it can be made easier when it incorporates happy mothering which is good for your health.
 
Celebrate Happy Mothering
 
Each year Mother’s Day celebrates the contribution women make to family life and acknowledges the importance of mothering. My earliest participation in this celebration, was the morning I proudly carried the breakfast tray into my mother's room for the first time. Serving my Mum breakfast in bed was my way of thanking her for the love and caring she was giving me. Of course, I didn't fully appreciate all she was doing to raise me to be a happy, healthy, good person. Yet my mother did this each day with boundless grace and love.
 
 
TIPS:
- Relish the challenges of parenting. Be pleased that you’re doing your best as a mother.
- Take pleasure in the fact that you get your children to school each day so that they can receive a good education, that you’re able to feed, clothe, and give them a safe, loving home; that through your efforts you are giving them a good start in life.
- Be glad to “Direct your children onto the right path (so that), when they are older, they will not leave it.” The Bible, Proverbs 22:6
- Feel satisfied that through your spiritual values and example, your children will become model citizens, knowing right from wrong, treating everyone with respect and kindness, and being a blessing to others at home, school and in the community.
- Have inner contentment. Find joy in allowing meditation or prayer help you be a happy mother. "Take time to be holy, Be calm in thy soul; Each thought and each motive beneath His control."  - W.D. Longstaff
- Be grateful for your mother’s nurturing and the selfless caring that women around the world give their own children and others.  “Happiness is spiritual, born of Truth and Love. It is unselfish; therefore it cannot exist alone, but requires all mankind to share it.”  Science and Health p. 57 – Mary Baker Eddy.
- Be joyous. With the help of a divine Mother-love you can fulfill your parenting tasks with poise and grace, and celebrate happy mothering.
