There is one irreversible truth: None of us would be here without our moms. Moms are the ones that carried us all in their wombs; they were the ones subjected to indescribable body changes. And in those early months of our fragility, mothers were the ones there to nurse us to strength. And through many periods of sickness and hospital visits, there were usually none but the moms alone that were there with many of us. Now don’t get me wrong. I recognize that not all mothers are perfect. In fact, I’m aware that there are certain moms that are far from the norm. There ever remains one indisputable truth; they are the divine channels through which we all came and without them none of us would be here. It sure isn’t fair to throw away the baby with the bath water. Honor must be given to whom it is due. We thank God for you and although we might not say it as often as we should, we know you are all so special, so wonderful, so precious, so kind, so trusting, so sacrificial…..On behalf of all living beings, accept our appreciation today and every day.
