In all its forms:
The immediate, the early, the continuous, the delayed;
The biological, the fostered, the adopted, the periodical, the incremental and the unusual;
To mothering by women, by men, by friends and neighbors, co-workers and teachers, siblings and relatives, by the kind smile of a stranger and moments of shared understanding;
To mothering by nature, by pets, by ocean waves, by breath and life’s constant flow and ebb;
To Mother Earth and Mother Moon;
To mothering of self, by self, by growth, by age and lessons learned and known …
To all of this, and more;
Thankful for mothering.
In all its forms.
