Mother

Abstracted From: The American Heritage Dictionary
Noun:

Creative source
Qualities attributable to a mother, such as the capacity to love

Adjective:
Having a maternal relationship

Verb:
To give birth to
To create and care for
To watch over, nourish and protect

For whom among us has not known both the seed

and the flower?

And the cycle.

Thick, rich dark earth

transformed by the light of day

and the caring and nourishing of the creator

who knows too well the concern,

the heartache, joy and the

ecstasy of this act of creating life!

To be a woman

is to be a mother.

Your mark on the world has already been felt

by the stream, the sky, the seed, the flower, and so much more!

Happy Mothers Day!
