From Portland to Austin

Because of your sacrificial love and nurturing we’ve become who we are. We’re never separated from you because we come from you. The best of us is because you gave, give and will always share the best of you. There’s no gift that we can give to equal all that you have done for us, others and all. Only to say that life is more cherished because of all mothers.

At the time of our birth, our life line goes from the umbilical cord to your comforting arms and your caressingly gentle hands. All of the life tasks that comes along with the job of mother is too numerous to list here. But I will name a few; teacher, doctor, nurse, nutritionist, maid, chauffeur, cheerleader, encourager, and protector.

And for all of the names that you are called throughout your life denotes the fact of your evolving passion of motherhood to your offspring and all who come in contact with you. Momma, Mom, Mother, Nana, Grandmother are just a few.

Some of my definitions to describe motherhood. Momma, the first callout to our loving nurturer. Mom, our number one supporter in the world. Mother, the mature friend to one’s child. Nana, beautiful and loving second mom. Grandmother, the wise counselor to many.

There’s no way that we can ever repay all that you have done and continue to do in our lives, except to say that our undying love and heartfelt remembrance of the sacrificial love will last forever. Thank you all for showing and spreading your love daily, year to year, to make us better people.

And for those, who like me have temporarily lost their mothers, I share this message,

As you have returned to where you come from, I can only relate to you as I did when I was growing inside of you. I can only see you in my mind. I can only hear you in my head. I can feel your presence inside of me. I look forward to the day when I will once again be able to see and embrace you in your fullness. Love you Momma!
