I've been thinking a lot today about the weight of motherhood, and I've been wondering about why our mothers have such an incredible impact on our lives. I've decided that the power of motherhood lies in the element of unconditional love.
Our mothers open their lives to us, they show us endless compassion and generosity, they accept us as we are despite what we do and don't do, and they inspire us to be the best that we can be. But, this role of mother isn't limited to only those who give us life in the biological sense, rather we find mothers all around us—in the women who teach us, who mentor us and who befriend us. So, today I celebrate my mother, and every mother, and the unconditional love they offer to us. May we each be inspired to love more like our mothers.
