To all the women who have accepted the call to motherhood, thank you. To all the special women who carried their children for nine months straight and loved them unconditionally before they even knew what they looked like, thank you. To all the scared women who didn’t know what was to come but trusted in the Lord’s will anyway, thank you. To the women who love and protect children who aren’t even biologically theirs, thank you. To all the brave women who, like Mary, said ‘yes’ and continue to do so even through pain and suffering and uncertainty, thank you. To all the Mothers on this day, we are so thankful to God for you. May you be celebrated today and every day. May Mary be your role model in your special vocation and help you especially in times of difficulty. Thank you, Moms! Happy Mother’s Day!
