Mother's Day


"Over There" by C.F. Payne as seen in Reader's Digest, May 2004

For all those moms who can't make it home, who have to be away from their families for one reason or another, who give more than what is asked of them, who parent on their own, trying to make the rent and pay the doctor bills with no health insurance, who work on Wall Street and Main Street or walk the streets or patrol the streets, for all those mothers who won't get a card tomorrow for whatever reason, this is for them. God bless all the mothers and all the children (fathers, your tribute is next month).

I'm not a birth mother nor an adoptive mother. But, I'm a godmother, and what a great surprise yesterday to get a card in the mail from one of my godchildren! I echo your prayers for all the mothers of all kinds who may or may not be honored by their children.
