Bless you, Mothers, for being expressions of divine love and caring.
With love and gratitude, I offer my blessing for all mothers today.
"Bless you for your expressions of warmth: for hugs, caring, laughter, and understanding--and for the freshly baked cookies that brought us together in shared moments of comfort and joy.
"Bless you for expressions of respect: honoring our own traditions, valuing humanity in all its array, teaching lessons of generous giving and open receiving, being not just tolerant, but understanding of and for diversity.
"Bless you for steadfast influence. Should we be together now or be connected through indelible memories, I am grateful to you for your enduring love. Whether you are my mother through birth or have been honored with this role through life's circumstances, we are blessed to be family."
"The man named his wife Eve, because she was the mother of all living."--Genesis 3:20
HAVE A WONDERFUL & BLESSED MOTHERS DAY!
