A special day

Dear Editor:

Every year at this time, my mind and heart return to a reoccurring thought as Mother’s Day approaches. On this special day, our children come to us with gifts, cards, and flowers, when all we want is to be with them and receive that big hug only they can give, and if we are lucky break bread with them.

If mothers are a gift from heaven, then what does that say about our children? So it seems to me that if it were not from them we would not have received or been able to receive and experience this overpowering, unconditional overpowering love that is so very different from any other and was born with and through them.

So on this one special day, in this one special month, every year we are honored and allowed to wear the crown, and are so very blessed to be called – mom.
