A Blessing on All Women
To those women whose children are now parents and even grandparents.
To those women who carry a child and dream of being called "Mommy".
To those women who have little ones who don't sleep through the night, who climb on everything, who wear you out with chasing.
To those women who patiently practice spelling words and math facts and read aloud every night.
To those women who are puzzled by their teens and tweens and struggle to hang on to their patience.
To those women who have gently let their own children leave the nest, who are sitting back to watch them fly.
To those women who love the children of another mother and fill needs we can not.
To those women who long for children and whose heart aches each day.
To those women who have chosen not to have children, and offer their heart full of love to those who fill their lives.
To us all. To every woman.
I wish you joy.
I wish you peace.
I wish you wisdom.
I wish you patience.
I wish you love abounding.
I wish you a very happy Mother's Day.
