I have tried to write my facebook 'status' about ten times today. Seems like the words I wanted to say were too big to fill the small space provided there.I thought is was a good metaphor for Mothers, for who we are, what we do and our potential. I decided to ask myself, "Am I a good Mother?" Go ahead, ask yourself that question. Don't be afraid, because the answer is in your children. Look at them, at your children. Do not look for the so called perfection, look for them and who they really are. Are they authentic, beautiful, and joyous beings? Do they live life honestly? Are they true to their convictions and beliefs? Are they independent thinkers? Are they kind, compassionate people. If the answer is yes to any of these questions, then the answer is "Yes, I am a good mother."
Blessings and peace to all mothers! Blessings and peace to every woman who has touched the life of another being in a maternal way, be you wife, lover, aunt, sister, activist, daughter, pet owner, maker of her home, to whatever you do and love on this earth, you are Mother and this day is for you too!
