“The Mother”

Thanks to Brandi Carlile, we Mothers now have a song that speaks directly to the beautifully complicated relationships we experience with ourselves and our children. In “The Mother,” we hear the wonder, the joy, and the sentimentality of motherhood – but also echoes of mourning for a lost self, reflections of resentment over sacrificed ambitions, and a complex gratitude for the complete identity that motherhood bestows to us.
​There is so much that could be said about the painfully, magically wondrous journey of becoming and evolving as a mother, but this song pretty much sums it all up. So instead for now, I invite you to grab a tissue, have a listen, and remember that the journey (in all its complicated ups and downs) leads us exactly to where and who we are meant to be.
