I couldn't get to the computer yesterday, but wanted still to send my prayers out to all mothers who struggle to mother:
with violence at home
with addiction / mental illness / health concerns - their own or their children's
with conflicting ideas of what it means to be a mother
and to all the children whose mothers aren't able to mother them as well as all children should be mothered,
and to all people who step in to mother when mothers can not.
I am so blessed as a mother --- my cup runneth over.
