To all women who have influenced lives and helped shape the next generation, HATS OFF TO YOU!! Today, may be called ‘Mother’s Day,’ but all women should be CELEBRATED (whether they conceived a child physically, through fostering or adopting, or mentored someone and helped the journey through life)!! If we are friends, family, teachers or leaders in youth organizations, we have all ‘mothered’ children, teens and adults.
Thank you to all the women in my life who have made me the person I am today. Thank you for your wisdom, your nurturing, your ability to challenge my thinking. Thank you for your courage, your character and your depth of soul. Thank you for showing those you influence how to have grace under pressure, how to grieve loss, how to rejoice with others and how to live every season of life with joy.
‘Mother’s Day’ doesn’t begin to encompass my wonderfully varied gender. So I am changing the name to include all the ones who have mothered people in generations past and present, given a legacy to future generations of what it means to be a woman and have gone unsung and unnoticed by society.
YOU ARE NOTICED! YOU ARE WORTHY! YOU ARE LOVED! ALL Y’ALL HAVE EARNED THE TITLE ‘MOTHER’!! I CELEBRATE YOU!!
