Mother's Day

When a baby arrives,
be it for a day, a month, a year or more,
or perhaps only a sweet flickering moment-
the fragile spark of a tender soul
the secret swell of a new pregnancy
the goldfish flutter known to only you-
you are unmistakeably changed...
the tiny footprints left behind on your heart
bespeak your name as Mother.

(Kimberly de Montbrun)


Happy Mother's Day to anyone out there who has ever been a mother; whether you were able to parent your child for forty years or only knew about them due to a pink line, you're still and always will be

A Mother.
