ON MOTHER’S DAY — By Cynthia De Boer

SLICE OF LIFE/PARENTING

 

“Mothers’ contributions have fueled our world from the beginning of time, and will do so for all the days too come!”

 

A mother is:

a woman with or without biological children, who gives of herself unselfishly.  She seems tireless as she tends to their needs, putting hers aside.  Making mistakes just as everyone does, she is hardest on herself when an error is made.  This gentle person turns into the fiercest creature imaginable if someone – anyone – even attempts to harm her children.  She always knows where everything is – at least everyone believes so.  Hum — perhaps the uterus is a built-in homing device for misplaced items.  This powerhouse juggles a million things at once, and is always on call.  Preparing her children to care for themselves and those to follow is the most amazing, and important responsibility in the world.  A mother is love!

Take the time to acknowledge all the Mother figures in your life on this special day.  They are amazing people and have given so much of themselves to us.  Blessings to all the Moms of the world!

 

Author’s Note:  Wishing all you wonderful Mothers a joyful, lovely day!  The magnificent fern was located in the Tuhane Forest, Tasmania and was shot by Dann De Boer.  The beautiful garden was at the Government House in Sydney and was shot by me.  Story Date:  May 10, 2013
