M other - there is no other who held us with such tender care
O n her lap as babes, cuddled, fed
T hen given a nudge to crawl
H er glance watchful of
E very move we made, and when we started to walk and
R un, our mothers, perhaps reluctantly, let us go to discover and grow!
Do we really want to get away from the nurturing we first had from a mother? I donít think so. All through life we seek relationships of nurturing - love and care given and received.
Mother's Day is an opportunity to give care either to our mother or to the world at large in the kind and caring way symbolic of mothers everywhere.
Let's make every day one of kind concern, through actions and our prayers and meditations on kindness.
Here is a prayer to include in your meditation for Mother's Day -
Blessed are mothers
Models of care, like no others.
With mothers' love in mind
May we grow to shine.
Bright beacons of care
For family, friends, neighbors -
Our world family everywhere!
