The idea of being a mother is not solely devoted to the act of giving birth. That trait of care and nurturing any of us have for another being – for any life form – is called The Mother Instinct, and it’s in every one of us.
If you have wiped away a tear,
If you have helped clean up any kind of mess,
If you have encouraged growth,
If you have taken care to clean and bandage a wound,
If you have fed the hungry,
If you have provided comfort, support, or shelter,
If you have shown genuine love,
You are a Mother.
“Mother” is a verb. If you have ‘mothered’ anything you are, indeed (in deed), a Mother.
Happy Mother’s Day, to you.
