Motherhood is about accepting the limitations of time and energy which strech beyond you, even if sometimes it feels that they could consume you. Search for and hold on to your own true self. If you loose that, what kind of mother can you be? Things are always changing no matter how much we might want things to stay the same. (...) So seize your days and dwell in them fully. Look to your children because they know how to inhabit brief periods of time with extreme passion. And for nothing more really than the sake of those moments. They can help you remember that. If you only slow down and let them. Feel fortunate because chances are good that you actually might be.
(From the movie "Una mama en apuros")
