No force in the world has more impact on a person’s well-being than a mother’s love. That’s why the word itself is used to describe anything nurturing and of vital importance to life. It’s also why we celebrate mothers today, and why we should every day. Mother’s Day is more than just a date on a calendar, it’s also an opportunity to reflect on our lives, regardless of age, and consider the woman who brought us into this world, gave us comfort
, love and continues to do so, and shaped so much of everything we are as human beings. Fathers, of course, play a vital role as well, but there’s no denying that no other single factor affects a person as much as the woman he or she calls mom. In rare instances that can be negative thing, but in most it’s just the opposite. Being a mother doesn’t require biology, though. Many great mothers fill that role who didn’t give birth but gave all their love to raising a child, or even filled a void left by a mother who could not handle the situation. So many troubled souls had childhoods where mothers were absent or not loving. That special bond sparked at the earliest hours of our lives and carried forward was broken for whatever reason. For those people it’s our hope that someone, a father, grandmother, grandparent, sibling or whomever, stepped in to supply the nurturing. It’s vital to a person’s happiness and ability to function successfully. Fathers know that although they bring critical and important elements of life to their children, it’s the mothers who play the biggest roles, or at least should. There’s an innate bond between a mother and child that is unbreakable and undeniable. In most cases, mothers are the warmth and security weaved into our souls. When we think of our most cherished childhood memories, moms typically play the central roles. They provide peace, empathy, compassion and lessons that lead us through the rest of our days. That doesn’t mean moms are perfect, because they aren’t, but many are as close as we’ll ever know. That’s why we celebrate Mother’s Day today. To remember what’s most important in our lives and the women who have been there for us since our first breath. They are our safe harbor. That’s magic found nowhere else in this life.
