365 # 134 Mother's Day

I want to write about mother's today, but it seems that the primary association I keep making is to the loss of them. Inappropriate, perhaps, on a celebration day. But we all have a mother, and we will all lose a mother.
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.
