Thank you so much. Happy Mother’s Day to you too. Mothering is an action, and you don’t have to birth someone in order to be a mother. I have plenty of adopted children my kids dragged home like stray puppies. I don’t meet strangers. If I got it you can get it. Meals, love, wisdom, discipline, money, a helping hand. I have plenty of babies I didn’t birth, and I care about each one of them.

You will be remembered by the seeds you plant, the water and food you provide, and the nurturing you offer to help those seeds blossom. So Happy Mother’s Day Tre! You mother too.
