Happy Mother's Day

It’s not about how much we give… but how much love we put into giving

A lot of my ‘Prana ladies’ are mums. Most are young mums with toddlers, but some of them are mums, like me, who have grown-up children. One day, not very long ago, two women of very different ages sat chatting over a cup of chai in the Prana lounge. The younger woman asked, ‘Do you have children?’ The other was silent for a moment, then beamed and replied, ‘Yes I do. You know, it’s been the longest time since anyone asked me that. How kind of you!’

How easy it is to be a little dismissive of older women, and forget that while their children are now adults, nothing has fundamentally changed. Older women are still mums: less ‘hands-on’, certainly; human and imperfect like we all are, yes. In the best of worlds they are wise enough to hand on the generational baton and remain quietly watchful, just in case…

To you all, respect and thanks. HAPPY MOTHERS DAY!
