Motherhood is both miracle and madness. It’s wonder and weariness. It’s question marks and false starts and always moving the finish line. 

Today I’ll offer a short blessing for all the mamas everywhere – both the newest ones, the most experienced ones, the ones who are still waiting as well as those who don’t think of themselves as mothers but they mother us in their own ways.

Maybe you’ll see yourself in a few of these lines or maybe you’ll see a friend, a sister, a cousin or a daughter. We all need to be mothered and this is a small celebration of the mother-work all women are doing in the world.

I raise my coffee mug to you.
