First and foremost, blessings go out to all mothers today. Happy are we who still have them near us. Happy are we who retain beautiful memories. Happy are we who celebrate the nurturing which gave each of us life! May all of us honor the mothering–the caring, protective kindness–which comes from aunts, sisters, God-mothers, and grandmothers!
