Meditations on mothering, balance, and the Taoist Way...

9.    Power

In mothering lies great power

It is easy for mother to think the child's life is hers to control

That the child is to be molded to her ideal, his flaws hers to correct

Right mothering recognizes this false belief

A wise mother knows only her own flaws are for her to correct

The child comes whole, to mold himself for his own life

The power in motherhood is in the strength of supporting and loving and of being present

Which is hard enough
