Jasmeen Kaur is a mother to a 15 month old and we asked her to share what motherhood means to her. She wasn't able to put it into words and so she shared a poem that she had heard which resonated with her.
ਮਾਂ ਨੂੰ ਮੈ ਵੇਖਿਆ ਫਰਿਁਸ਼ਤਾ ਨੀ ਵੇਖਿਆ।
ਮਾਂ ਨਾਲੋ ਵੱਡਾ ਮੈ ਕੋਈ ਰਿੱਸ਼ਤਾ ਨੀ ਵੇਖਿਆ।
ਜੀਹਦਿਆ ਸਾਹਾ ਦੇ ਵਿੱਚੋ ਸਾਹ ਲੈਣਾ ਸਿੱਖਿਆ।
ਰੱਬ ਕਹਿਣ ਨਾਲੋ ਪਹਿਲਾ ਮਾਂ ਕਹਿਣਾ ਸਿੱਖਿਆ।
I saw a mother, not an angel.
I didn't see any relationship greater than a mother's.
From her breath, I learned to breathe.
Before saying God's name, I learned to say mother first. •
In light of Mother's Day coming up, we are excited to share a new project! For the next 30 days, we want to focus on capturing mothers in the community. So, we ask you, the community, to share any motherly figure who has provided you with love that cannot be replicated by any other. How has this mother impacted you? Mothers, feel free to share what motherhood means to you! Let's celebrate these wonderful mothers together.
We will be randomly selecting one mother from the comments and inviting them to a photoshoot at no cost to them, providing them with photos and sharing their stories in this space. ‐-----------------------------------------------
We want to thank Baljinder Kaur ( @blahjinder ) for inspiring us at her talk to challenge ourselves daily in order to promote growth! Looking forward to the next 30 days 🙌
First camping trip of the season with @jenicaenquist and fam. It was a bit cold still but we had a great time and my kids are already asking when we can go again. First I need this sunburn to heal 😬 and to have a few hot showers.
Highlights from our weekend getaway to Sechelt including: homemade breakfasts in bed by our amazing Airbnb hosts, kayaking in the best “backyard” surroundings, digging up clams and so much more! #westcoastbestcoast#beautifulbc#sechelt#duotang
No egg hunt for me...BUT, my mom did circle the block while I ran into London Drugs to pick up my online order of mini eggs cuz I was afraid they’d sell out before I got my paws on them, and then I proceeded to eat half the bag in my post-hike half-asleep stupor. So, y’know, Happy Easter and such. 🥳🐣
We don’t fit in the insta-square and I’m okay with it 💓 I never recognize people at Coachella (it’s really hard to with all the hats, bandanas, sunnies, etc.) but I instantly recognized Aimee! She’s so beautiful and so kind in person - and complimented my outfit 🥰 so happy to have met such an inspirational style icon! #coachella2019
