Today is the designate official 'Mothers Day', yet every day is Mothers day so long as women bear children Would that it were universally so. However, women are, and have always been our least honored resource world wide, and mothers, our least supported natural asset. If I could speak to my own departed mother what would I say?
Thank you. Yes, thank you for my life. I know it wasn't an easy birth, nor was I an easy child, easy adolescent or easy adult. I know the hard details of your life before me and the rest of your life too. But just now, right now, it's all simply memories, fading photographs, and mist. I know we both did our best, so from this distance, I'm waving at you with love, unconditional and true.
