The Heart Of A Mother

Whether you have no children.......or 18 children, the instinct of a mother resides in all of us. Some know the feel of tiny fingers grasping around their own finger, the toothless smile that melts the heart.......others know the deep dark eyes and shy smile of a little one many, many, miles away in another land and of another culture, being nurtured and helped by the loving and giving heart.
We all have the response to help not only a tiny human babe, but also to render aide to the small fluff balls of chicks, goats, and many other creatures who need mothering. We all have gratitude to those who teach our young ones...what would we do without them?
We all have felt our heart being tugged at an image of a small lost child on the television and our hearts go out to that child's mother.......because we all know how we would feel if it were our own.We all say a prayer and keep hope in our heart...a mother's heart.

Yes, no matter who we are, what age we are, what our number count in motherhood is,.....the heart of a mother resides in all of us.
May all of you have a beautiful Mother's Day!
