16.03.17 – Today’s COTD is the Mother of Wands
There’s nothing as terrifying as watching a mother defend her brood. She is all powerful, fierce, raging and down right scary. I don’t blame her, as I can be just like that too.
Being pro-active is defending those you love is admirable, until it becomes suffocating for the recipients and painful to those who witness.
Knowing when to start cutting the ‘apron strings’ and let those in your care start to lead their own lives can be hard. But if you’ve done your job right, then when they do eventually step out eagerly into the world, they will do so with the skills and confidence you have freely bestowed upon them, as all good nurturers do.
