For Mothers


This is for all mothers, everywhere. 
This is for the women who love unconditionally, 
making sure the needs of others are met, 
often forsaking their own. 
This is for her because her pride is not in herself, 
but in those she loves.

This is for mothers whose hearts are whole,
and those whose hearts are broken, 
because both are made of love.

Whether your babies are flesh and blood, 
or fur and fuzz, this is for you. 
You deserve this, because 
Love is its own reward.

Happy Mother's Day.
