Happy Mothers Day!

To all of you wonderful Moms out there, 

What is a Mother? 
A mother is someone to shelter and guide us,

To love us, whatever we do,

With a warm understanding and infinite patience,
And wonderful gentleness, too.
How often a mother means swift reassurance

In soothing our small, childish fears,

How tenderly mothers watch over their children
And treasure them all through the years!
The heart of a mother is full of forgiveness

For any mistake, big or small,

And generous always in helping her family
Whose needs she has placed above all.
A mother can utter a word of compassion

And make all our cares fall away,

She can brighten a home with the sound of her laughter
And make life delightful and gay.
A mother possesses incredible wisdom

And wonderful insight and skill - 

In each human heart is that one special corner
Which only a mother can fill!
- Katherine Nelson Davis 

Happy Mother's Day!!!

I must say I LOVE this version of what a mother is!!! Far too many people have been posting about things like carrying a child, BFing, their bodies not being perfect, etc and it is disheartening. I am an adoptive mommy and I might not have gotten to experience the physical elements BUT I certainly do EVERYTHING else that your post described a mother as being. Thank you and Happy Mother's Day!!!!
