Why Some Mothers Are Always Joyful

Here, RD&T contributor Kathryn Sandford offers ten insights as to why some mothers are always joyful.  

To describe my mother would be to write about a hurricane in its perfect power. Or the climbing, falling colors of a rainbow. – Maya Angelou

After 22 years of being a busy Mum, a working Mum, an involved Mum, a helicopter Mum, a kind Mum, a nagging Mum, an insecure Mum, and a taxi driver Mum, I am still asking myself: Is there an easier and less complicated way to be a good Mum?

Sarah’s Secret

The answer, thankfully, is yes. There is a better way, and I found it when I met Sarah – a self-proclaimed joyful mother. She actually said to me she was a “joyful mother” of seven children. The fact that she had seven children was amazing enough; however, what I also couldn’t get over was how fantastic she looked.

I wanted to know Sarah’s secret about how she managed to look so great and be so happy while being a mother to seven children. Secretly, I was hoping that she would turn out to be a Wonder Mother, who is so perfect that I wouldn’t even try to follow her advice.

But Sarah is definitely not a wonder woman, and as I got to know Sarah, I discovered that her secret for being not only a great mother but also a fantastic woman, is that she truly is a joyful mum, who loves her family and lives a happy and fulfilled life.

I now believe 100% that the secret to being a good mother is to choose to be a joyful mother. I also realise that it is hard for us to be great mothers all the time. However, by being joyful we can be good mothers most of the time.
