Not only does Julia Cuccia-Watts describe her as the archetypal mother, but she also has her standing there with one breast on show. For someone who is getting her breasts out every couple of hours to feed a baby, that seems pretty much where I am.
Still, it's not just about where I am, but about where I need to be. I haven't meditated since the day I gave birth, and I'm missing it. And yet, I am also often in the moment, feeling things intensely at both a physical and emotional level. Feeling the suck of a baby at my breast, feeling the love welling in my heart.
Focusing on being a mother, I am storing up goodness for later, creating a lasting relationship with my child. That is the coin that I am squirrelling away in my treasure chest, and it's worth it, even if other things are left by the wayside for the moment...
