Motherly Love

Mother’s Day is a day to celebrate love, most importantly motherly love.

So what exactly is “motherly love?” It is what comes out of watching the blood, sweat, and tears of the woman attending to your NEEDS:

The appreciation that you feel for your mother as she held your head with a cold cloth while you were sick 

As she helped you with all the hard decisions you had to make

As she stayed up worrying about you after curfew

The mother who would go to the mat for you…

Thus, defines the intense strength of a mother’s love or “motherly love.”

On this day especially, even if this comes from our cellular memory bank, even if we can’t physically hold her, we carry a particularly special love and appreciation for the mother that was sent to us as our guardian angel.

Happy Mother’s Day
