When I think of mothers, experiences of love, gentleness, nurturance, and compassion flood my memory. Even if I did not experience these qualities from my biological mother, she did give me life. I give thanks for all those inspiring mothers who did touch my life.
To my mother and everyone who has blessed me with a mother’s care, I wrap you in kindness and love. I am grateful for your presence in my life, and for any sacrifices you made that gave me the opportunity to grow and learn. You taught me the power of love, gentleness, and the strength found in giving. You taught me by example how to be true to myself.
I enfold you with thoughts and feelings of infinite love and peace as I join with others in gratitude and joy today.
