Embrace the "Mother" in You

Mother’s Day is a big deal in our culture. Brunch, gifts, cards, flowers. I’m glad mothers are honored; the celebration is important. (I remember you, Mom, with love and gratitude.) I also feel there are many ways to be a “mother”:

Tend a garden. Mentor a child. Give a hug. Stay, even when—especially when—it’s difficult. Smile at strangers. Carry snacks. Listen with attention and care. Love generously. Show compassion. Be strong when needed and vulnerable when needed. Sing gently. Dance freely. Live, laugh, and cry from an abundant heart.

Imagine if we all embraced these pieces of mother within us. If we did, I think the world would change in amazing, radical, and beautiful ways.
