>Looking after you

>Everything I have in life is based upon looking after others. I have a calling for this direction, and I know that it will be this way for the rest of my life.
And there are some people who also look after me!
Being a mother means a lot of things, but to me, it means making sure that everyone in your life is taken care of. It also means that you cannot always have things go the way you would like them to.

For example, you may not like it when bad things happen to your kids, and you try to assist as much as possible, but things still happen, and you have to take all of it, the good, bad and ugly times in life.

Protection is the natural instinct of every mother. You try to protect and make sure that your children grow up with love in their hearts.
But you also have to let go at times and allow them to make many mistakes that you wish you could have helped them with, but this is not your job. Everyone has to find out the hard way.

So if you are a mother here is a tip from the book: Creative Visualizations by Shakti Gawain:

Our lives contain 3 levels: Being, Doing and Having

Being is the basic experience of being alive and well.
It can be being totally at rest with oneself. Strive for this!
Doing is movement, activity and helping others. It is natural, creative energy that you
can help others to learn.
Having is the state of being in relationships with others. It is the ability to allow and accept things as they are!
