Mother's Day


This is for the childless mothers,
not by choice but of circumstance,
because though her arms are empty,
her heart is always full.

This is for the motherless,
the ones who know that 
no love is perfect, but 
a mother’s love is special.

And, this is for the special ones
who mother those in need,
sharing the love in their hearts,
knowing that love is a gift.

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

  4. I love this! Motherhood takes many forms. You have mothered so many of God's neediest creatures, and I know that each and every one holds a special place in your heart. Mothering is caring beyond measure, love knows the way. <3

  6. As always, Annie, beautifully written. My mom died 51 years ago when I was 16. We never had the opportunity to have a "good" relationship. Not sure that would have developed, though. Being a mom to furry children is in some ways a lot easier and in some ways much harder. Thanks for recognizing all moms in your poem. I pray you had a blessed, relaxing and happy day filled with lots of love. Sending my love, Janet
