Mother’s Day

What a wonderful day that is! How blessed are those who can still wish their moms a beautiful day face to face or some other means of earthly communication. Those of us whose moms have passed can certainly still remember them joyfully and feel gratitude for their loving care.

Who or what is a mother anyway? The dictionary lists 12 definitions. Number 8 says anyone who exhibits the qualities characteristic of a mother, as maternal affection. I’m thinking any human that is caring for a person younger than themselves in a loving and guiding way qualifies. “Mothers” come in all shapes, sizes, genders, colors, ages and so on. Let’s not forget those amazing folks that are caring for our youth in some capacity. It is always an act of love, in my opinion, to take on such a role with a heart wide open to give….for an hour, a day, a month, or a lifetime! So, let me express my gratitude to all who might fit that description and celebrate your selfless offering!

Happy Mother’s Day!
