Here’s to all the mothers.
You are many different things and more.
You are a model and a guide, a teacher and leader, you are both fair and firm, the first port of call and the last resort.
It amazes us how these things are embedded in your DNA: from your malleable hands like a porter’s to your green heart like a farmer’s, and your gifted eye like an artist’s.
It might seem to you that we find more joy playing with our phones or playing on our own, but we all shed tears when you leave.
In times when we almost drive you crazy, it’s amazing how your silence causes us to be sorry, and, when you do speak, the way your words claim silence as if it owns the air around it.
We see how much you love and care for us
It’s why we call you mother. Thank you for all that you do.
Happy Mother’s Day!
