You Are a Mother.
Today, we celebrate Mothers.
It doesn’t matter whether you work full time, stay home, work from home, foster, or are an empty nester.
It doesn’t matter if you have one child or twenty.
It doesn’t matter if you are infertile and will never have a child.
If you have ever held a newborn and felt that “one day” feeling come over you, you are a mother. If you watch someone’s child for them, whether regularly or on a special occasion, you are a mother. If you have taught children, you are a mother. If you have ever delighted in the joy of another mother’s triumph or held her as she grieved, you.are.a.mother.
You don’t have to give birth to be a mother. You don’t have to be a wife to be a mother. If you are a woman, you have a mother’s heart.
Today, I want to celebrate all women. Those who have children, those who have lost children, and those who pray that one day they’ll be called “Mama.”
You are all beautiful. You are all loved.
Happy Mother’s Day.
