What was the best gift your mother bestowed on you?

As we approach Mothers Day here in Australia I’m reminded of the mixed bag of lessons I learned, and often the ones I failed to heed till time had passed and mistakes were made.
Authoring Sweet 16 allowed me to reassess and revisit my relationship with my mother and other women during my life.
I realised the inner child is ever-present. The adults around us though strong and resilient have a history that determines their way. They didn’t have the life manual either and I need to be as kind to them as I am with a toddler.
To the mothers and carers out there you are amazing. It’s a tough job and you are doing it. Hopefully with the support and assistance of the village.
