Partly, well no fully, because I knew I could never find the words to explain how I feel about this magazine, the community of Mother readers and the richness it has all brought to my life.
I have subscribed from the beginning ( yes I have that much sought after Issue 1 ) and from that very first read, my relationship with The Mother has grown and blossomed.
She has lead me down paths I would never have traveled ( holding my hand all the way )
She held me in the middle of the night in those early breastfeeding days, when I thought I couldn't breastfeed, wrong latch, wrong position, not enough milk ... for every worry I had, there were words to tell me I could and I did.
She has introduced me to friends that I will LOVE forever and ever.
She has taught me endless lessons, that have comforted, healed and nurtured me.
I am a better person for knowing Her.
My strength of feeling for them, knows no bounds.
Veronika's wise and kind words telling me that it was ok to take my babies back into the heart of our home for their education rather than leaving them sad and lonely at school are words that happily changed our lifes forever.
I knew that many hands held us when Emma Joan died and we continue to feel the Love for her from this amazing community of Mother friends.
I could not be without this magazine and so, as She is struggling in these difficult financial times I would like to offer those of you who have never seen The Mother the chance to read a copy and begin your relationship with Her.
I have 2 copies from this year to send ... anywhere to anybody.
Please leave a comment telling me why you'd like to received one of these issues.
