This week we celebrate Mother’s Day.  If you are a mother or if you’ve seen one or if you have one, you probably can agree that being a mother is a difficult task.  Understanding the physical, spiritual and emotional complexity of being a “mother”, may differ depending on the role you play to that title.  Regardless of where we stand to understanding and feeling the great responsibility of mother, we all can probably attest that that calling is like no other.

Sometimes, I think, “life can’t be better than this”… and then it gets better.  Sometimes I think, “nothing is harder than this” … and then it gets harder.  But throughout all these times, the really good and the really-not-so-good, I am reminded that life is meant to be glorious! And as Mother’s Day approaches, I am once again reminded that motherhood, my mother, my web of beautiful mothers who I look to as shining examples, and my own opportunity to be a mother truly is GLORIOUS!
