Happy Mother’s Day

8 May

A sweet woman and a wonderful mother sent me a Mother’s Day card.  She’s a fantastic mom and has raised four great children–so I think she knows a thing or two about Motherhood.

Motherhood is not for sissies.

Motherhood is not for women
with weak stomachs,
strict routines,
or wall-to-wall white carpeting.

Motherhood is not for women
unable to juggle three things at once,
read between the lines,
or face fear on a regular basis.

Motherhood is not for women
too quick to use the word “impossible,”
or too hesitant to say “yes, you can.”

Motherhood is not for women
who refuse to believe in miracles,
or tomorrows, or themselves.

Motherhood is for
the caring and courageous women
who make a difference in the lives they touch.

Thanks Jane for the encouragement.
Thanks Mom for giving me life and for giving me an example of caring and courageous.
