Many of us are or will become mothers, but not all. Because it's a really big deal. Really big. And I don't mean being pregnant and giving birth. While those life events are formative and powerful and important, not everyone becomes a mother that way. In fact, not all who have those experiences are mothers. Mothering is an action. It comes from intent and love and dedication. So, keep on keeping on, Mama's and Big love to you.
