Happy Mothers’ Day

I was working on one of my impossible projects and just stopped. I felt compelled to write something for all of the moms out there, widely unappreciated, except for this one day. For all of the women with the strength, compassion, courage, and fortitude to be a mom, here you are…

To all the beautiful women

who’ve sported swollen ankles and bursting bellies,

broken water and bloody mess,

we salute you.

To all the wonderful women

who’ve worn vomit and stood the night watch,

full of 3am poop,

we stand with you.

To all the exceptional women

who’ve fought and loved,

lived and died,

held onto us, only to have to

let go,

Blessed be

Our mothers.
