National Poetry Month-Recipe for Motherhood

4 heaping cups of Mama bear, lay down my life love

1 cup each of awe and inspiration, gratitude and joy

1/2 cup each of patience, empathy and compassion

3T each of structure, discipline and expectations

Generously sprinkle in laughter and humor

Fold in snuggles and hugs

Remove any sense of having control (ever again!) before baking

When cool, ice with consistency, persistency and advocacy

Sit and savor, alone, with family and with friends

*Serves a lifetime of rewards
