Mother’s Day

I am struck by the fact that the first two greetings I received today were not from my own children but from my  children’s friends.  I don’t say this to criticize my own children but rather to remind myself of the effect we can have on the lives of others.  All it takes is a little bit of time and energy. 

So today I want to remind myself to take that time to listen, to encourage, to be a mother to someone who needs one.   I know I will get back more than I give.
