Happy Mother's Day!
To all mothers who have endured the pain of childbirth and forgotten how painful it is and done it again! and again! ( did you read about the mother who just had her 18th child?). To all the mothers who wake up at 1:30 am to hear a child vomitting on the carpet ( I did this twice this week!) and who hold their child's head over the toilet while they're sick and clean up after them and then pray that they will get better soon. To all the mother's who made the decision to give their baby up for adoption instead of aborting them or trying to raise them alone ( thank you, my birth mother, wherever you are). To the mothers who adopted these babies and loved them as one of their own ( thanks, MOM!). To all the mothers who have had to bury their babies to early. To all the mothers who have had to send their babies off to war with tears and prayers. To all the mothers who have had to hold their child's hands at a hospital. To all the mothers who don't have their own children but nurture other's children. To mothers throughout the centuries who have given up their own food, so their child's tummy will be full.
To mothers everywhere! Have a very Happy Mother's Day!
