Womb to Tomb

We are all the children of someone. Throughout our life entire, we will always be that child, even as we grow old, even if we have children ourselves.

From the womb to the tomb, Mothers are part of our survival, for they give us more than life. They are the first relationship that shapes us and, more often than not, one of the more prevalent relationships we return to over the years. 

No matter the role they play in our lives, they will guide us forever, for they helped shape us from the beginning. They remain with us, beyond even death, for they are a part of our blood and that blood will be present in our every heartbeat to our very end.

Mothers are far from perfect, for they are just people like the rest of us, but to each of us, they have the ability to shine beyond their flaws because they are our mother. We can forgive and forget and take comfort in what is shared and remembered. 

They help us survive and a lot of us will face a time when we help them survive, whether in actual life or in fond memories. 

Be thankful for your mother today, whether you are blessed enough to hold her hand or need to light a candle in her memory instead. Sing a song of thanks in your heart today, you survive because once she gave you life. 

Hold her hand. Light a candle. Smell a rose. Smile at a thought. Take a moment to remember and reflect on the journey we are on and those who started that journey with us.
Happy Mother's Day.
