Mother's Day

There are many ways to answer the question, “What is Motherhood?” and one of those ways might be that Motherhood means sharing in the creative power of God. Conceiving, carrying and giving birth to another human being is as close as any person can get to the act of creation. This is the beginning of motherhood but it is far from the end. Motherhood is also about nurturing, sacrificing, loving and ultimately, letting go.

“I believe in the love of all mothers and its importance in the lives of the children they bear. It is stronger than steel, softer than down, and more resilient than a green sapling on a hillside. It closes wounds, melts disappointments, and enables the weakest child to stand talk in the fields of adversity. Thank God for mothers and thank mothers for helping us to understand an all-loving God.”
Jan Crouchin. Extract: Mother’s Day Creed.
