I’m Not Mom, I’m Point B

If I should have a daughter,
instead of Mom, she’s gonna call me Point B.
So that way she knows that whatever happens,
at least she can always find her way to me.”
-Sarah Kay, “B”

Sarah Kay is 22-year-old slam poet who performed “B” on the popular TED. Her spoken word and interview from TED have gone viral, and there is no doubt in my mind why. She speaks powerful words and beautifully portrays the relationship between mothers and daughters.

So many of the things Sarah says evoke immense feelings about my own mama and my relationship with Jemma. It’s an interesting place to be both a daughter and a mother. I feel more love and more pain than I ever have. More joy, more heartache, more worries, more excitement. Motherhood is an extreme blessing and I cherish every moment of it!

“B” has evolved from a poem, to a video, and is now available in book form. This book, along with a heartfelt note would be the perfect Mother’s Day gift.

I’m happy to be giving away a copy through Facebook between today and Sunday. To enter, all you need to do is “like” That Mama Gretchen and post this (or something similar in your status update), “Like That Mama Gretchen by April 22nd for a chance to win a copy of “B” by Sarah Kay – the perfect Mother’s Day gift! http://www.thatmamagretchen.com/2012/04/im-not-mom-im-point-b.html”
