The first thing we know is our mother. For nine months she is our entire universe. Her heart beat, and her voice are the first things that we hear. Her touch, her smell among the first we learn and recognize. She is the one who feeds us physically and mentally as we grow. She is who we seek for comfort, and the one who endures our adolescent protests. She is our first teacher, our first love, and her voice and lessons remain in our heads and hearts our whole lives. Even grown men will still whimper for her when in pain or fear…… because she is Home. She is Mother.
Happy Mother’s Day to all of you beautiful, brave women out there!
