It's a beautiful spring day. Tulips and daffodils are blooming everywhere. Mother's Day is just around the corner. Regardless of our gender or our lot in life, the two things we all have in common is that each of us had mothers and each of us can be mothers in some form to someone. My own family experience was close to idyllic - we were raised by a mother who stayed home with her family and who still loves us dearly. Yet there were many other friends in my life in the past and even now who "mother" me - and I love them for it! As Mother's Day nears we have endless opportunities to "mother" others - to model and mentor, to comfort and encourage, to help and heal. What a honour and what a responsibility!
