To my child who always keeps me on my toes, but is there with a ready hug when I need it. I love you.
To my physical mother, who gave birth to me and raised me on her own I say thank you and I love you.
To my spiritual mother, Mary, the mother to us all, I am thankful when you are there for me when my physical mother can't be. I am thankful for your powers of patience and compassion. But most of all I'm thankful for your strength. I imagine that being the mother of God is an easy task, but then remember all the pain you must have gone through when your only child was drug away, beaten and crucified. I could never have been in your place. Thank you for all that you do and I love you.
Please remember those whose mothers have gone to your loving arms may they be blessed with knowing that you have given them your own mother as theirs.
Please remember those who have never known their physical mother and now yearn for her. Let them know their spiritual mother who will comfort their sorrow and tears.
Please guide those women who have recently become mothers through natural birth or adoption. Let them be filled with the compassion, mercy and strength of your own mother.
Please protect those who are separated by war, illness or disagreement. May they be comforted in there loss and soon reunited.
For all mothers, along with their daughters and sons, may they be blessed with joy and happiness this Mother’s Day.
