To ALL the mothers

My daughter sent me this beautiful canister for Mother's Day. It has something inside, but I am waiting till Sunday to look.

Having raised a few children, I am more appreciative of all that my own mother did for me, and the struggles she experienced. I am also thinking about all the women who have been like mothers to me, in showing me the way through this life, or by loving me. Some of those women have either never had children of their own, or have experienced enormous heartbreak in motherhood, or have even tragically lost their children. We are all mothers, because God put hearts in us that long to nurture. Thanks to ALL the mothers out there, and have a wonderful Mother's Day.

That is the nicest, most heart-felt sentiment for mothers I've ever heard. I am humbled and thankful... and I have that same canister in black -- don't forget to tell us what's in it... I'm back to humble again.

Hello, You have put into words just what I wanted to! I could not find the right words to convey the love that All women have as you so beautifully did. Thank You!
