Thank goodness that mothers come in all shapes, sizes, ages and cultures!
There are all kinds of mothers, each healing and loving in their own way and trying to do what they think is best for their precious children. Today we celebrate the many wondrous things our mothers do for us out of the goodness of their huge loving hearts.
Everyone has some kind of a Mom: traditional, surrogate, birth mother, step mother and adopted mother. No matter what the silly label, mothering a child is one of the most important jobs in the world. I have loved every minute of it and would not trade it for anything — especially the handmade gifts such as the one pictured above that my young son made for me many years ago.
It’s a keeper that always lifts my heart!!
While I was surfing around on the web last week, I came upon this short sweet video (click here) exploring the unique bond between mothers and their children. That bond is like no other feeling. Waves of immense love and trust wash over you and can make a mother feel as though it’s possible to leap tall buildings in a single bound and be more powerful than a locomotive.
Mothers may not always feel they are faster than speeding bullets but I think most mothers like to imagine that when they are with the child or children they are guiding and nurturing that they have been endowed with a wide variety of superpowers otherwise how could they get through most of the busy and hectic days that make up their very full lives.
Happy Mother’s Day to all the women and men who are with us today physically and spiritually, who took it upon themselves to mother us and make us the people we are today. We hold them in our hearts and cherish our incredible memories of the time we spent and continue to spend with them.
