INSPIRATION FOR MOTHERS WITH LITTLES

Hi Beauties!

This beautiful deep and soulful poem by the all so wise Peggy O'Mara was my guiding light when my children were little. I copied it and gave it to all the women who came to my baby blessing when I had my third beauty baby. I hope it inspires even one woman who is caring for her family ...

With love,
Carrie-Anne

There is time still
for sitting in cafes
in paris
sipping wine.
Time still
for going to meet the guru.
There is time still.
Now I am caring for eternity.
Carry bodies soft with sleep
to beds of flowered quilts and pillows.
Answering cries deep out of nighttime fears.
Buckling shoes.
Opening doors.
Pretending.
My soul now is dwelling in the house of tomorrow.
Tomorrow there will be time for long leisurely conversations,
for poems to write,
and dances to perform.
Time still.
So I surrender now to them to this,
knowing it is they who will teach me how to do it all.
— Peggy O'Mara
