Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers!
Some are still here with us (like my own Mom!!),
Some have moved on from this Earth,
Some have their children nearby,
And others have their children spread around the world.
Some have children we know,
Some have children we've never known.
Some have children that have passed on from this Earth,
Some have children they've never met.
Some have children that are four-legged friends.
Some have children that are not their own, but they love them as though they were.
Being a mother is not about last names or bloodlines. It is about providing for the young ones placed in their charge. Some mothers are "good at it" and others might need some help. But, no matter what, the person we call "Mother" is the person that loved us enough to give us life (even if that life was cut short) and to care for us as best SHE could.
I hope each and every MOM out there has a wonderful day today - whether that means being treated to a meal, treated to a movie, treated to some family time, or simply in thinking of their children and of their children thinking of them.
Happy Mother's Day to my Mom, my Mother-in-Law, and to the mother of my children!! I love you all.
