The term is being used a lot these days. Essential businesses have been able to remain open amidst a worldwide quarantine. There is ongoing debate about which business is truly essential or not to continue engaging in commerce. Though what is not debatable are the vital efforts of homeopathy’s true essential workers: mothers.
Without mother’s looking out after the health and wellbeing of their children - always seeking to find the best way for their optimal health - we homeopaths would not be able to continue doing what we love to do. It’s amazing working with mother’s and whole families, plotting out how best to help each person with whatever may come your way. The care and concern, dedication and willingness to go the extra mile on behalf of your children helps make the world go round.
It’s very sacrifical, this parenting. As a father, I experience that, as well. Though, the heart of every family lies in the love of a mother. When you’re exhausted and feel you’ve lost your way; when it seems problems or issues in the family are insurmountable; when you make health decisions for your family that are not widely supported or according to conventional wisdom; when your painstaking efforts seem overlooked - we hear you, we see you, and are right there with you in homeopathy.
In the middle of a pandemic and societal shutdown, when it feels all has fallen on you to feed, care-take, work, and now educate your children - all in isolation - we see and acknowledge everything you’re doing. It may feel like it, but truly, you are not alone.
In gratitude, we at Austin Clinic of Homeopathy celebrate Mother's Day by thanking you mother's: true essential workers.
