Remember You Are The Only Person Who Knows What Her Heart Sounds Like From The Inside...
Mother’s Day is just around the corner. On Sunday 12 May, sons and daughters all across Australia will be reaching for the kettle as they celebrate their very different mums in very different ways. At Madura, we’re all about the simple things in life and when it comes to sharing special moments, it doesn’t get much simpler than a cuppa and a chat to bring children and their mothers together.
Motherhood – Embracing our beautiful differences
If we’re not a mum ourselves, we’ve got a mum. Throughout the ages, we’ve always known that mothers have the ability to wear many different hats; but today’s mums also travel very different journeys. Mothers today can be anything. They’re full time workers, entrepreneurs, shift workers, students, or stay at home carers. They’re teenaged through to mature-aged women earning their tiger stripes with every new phase and challenge motherhood brings.
Today’s mothers could be married or single, or widowed; straight or gay. They could be breast feeding, or bottle feeding. They might be artists, or writers, or sportspeople, or emergency service responders. Perhaps they’re battling cancer, or mental health issues, or are survivor mums raising awareness for causes close to their heart.
The path of motherhood is as individual and important as the woman who bears the title, but no matter which path a mum treads, there’s one thing they all have in common. They’ll all experience the same joys, heartbreak, triumphs, anxieties, obstacles, frustrations, and selfless acts of love that motherhood brings – it goes with the territory! Whatever your ‘mum story’ is, Mother’s Day is all about celebrating individuality and expressing gratitude…
Who will you share the moment with this Mother’s Day?
Mother’s Day doesn’t need to be a commercial occasion, elaborate lunch, or expensive gift. If you ask most mums, they’ll say the thing they cherish more than anything is quality time with their family – especially for those whose children have left home.
Some families are fortunate enough to have several generations to share the moment with – daughter, mother, and grandmother…perhaps even a great grandmother. Sharing stories and memories, family history, and new endeavours and milestones is what keeps the fabric of family strong. The gift of time is priceless, and it is these special moments that we’ll recall with a nostalgic smile tomorrow, or 10 years from now …
