A wish for mothers on Mother’s Day by Michelle Bremer

“A Wish for Mothers” by Michelle Bremer

There’s a famous quote by author Elizabeth Stone that reads, “Making the decision to have a child – it is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body.” That is a pretty accurate visual of motherhood.

No matter what type of parent we are, most of us can agree that our hearts are vulnerable in the hands of our children. We do our very best to protect them and guide them, and with high hopes we eventually set them free. That’s the cycle and it goes on and on, forever.

A mother’s connection to her children cannot be measured; it is beyond comprehension, it is boundless. Mother’s Day is a time to celebrate those connections. It’s an opportunity to show gratitude to mothers everywhere for the many sacrifices they have made.

If all Moms could see themselves through the eyes of their young child, they would see a superhero! They would see a woman whose beauty shines like the sun and whose words hold infinite power. Mothers, step-mothers and mother-figures of the world, may you always carry with you in your heart the gratitude of those for whom you have given so much.

Feeling unconditional love for your child is a gift from the universe, and having it reciprocated is the cherry on top of the ice cream sundae we call “motherhood.”
