To the mothers...
the mothers who bore their children, adopted their children, married into their children
the mothers who lost their children, miss their children, ache for their children
the women who struggle for children, wait for children, try for children
the women who are kind to children, accepting of children, giving to children
the teachers who encourage the children, comfort the children, care for the children
the daughters who hug their mothers, love their mothers, are thankful for their mothers
the daughters who miss their mothers, cry for their mothers, long for their mothers
the daughters who hurt from their mothers, cry because of their mothers, forgive their mothers
to all of us, touched in some way by motherhood...
I wish you a happy, blessed, peaceful, gracious Mother's Day.
