Today, I am completely, profoundly, one-hundred percent grateful for motherhood!

Being a mom is the single-most amazing gift my life has ever given me! It has taught me lessons, both profound and simple. It has humbled me on many, many occasions. It has drawn me outside of myself at times when all I wanted to do was stay closed up inside, and never come out again. It has broadened my vision in ways I could never have even imagined. It has deepened my capacity for love, and has created a richness in my life that I feel every second, of every minute, of every hour, of every day! Without Motherhood my life would be gray, and I would not be me! LOL

So today, you may celebrate your mother (as do I) - but I see this day as more of an opportunity to thank my life for the gift of Motherhood - in all it's history, in all it's raw tenderness, in all it's lessons, in all it's simple glory!

Two Callings (1904)

And then the great voice rang out to the sun,
And all my terror left me, all my shame,
While every dream of joy from earliest youth
Came back and lived!—that joy unhoped was truth,
All joy, all hope, all truth, all peace grew one,
Life opened clear, and Love? Love was its name!

So when the great word ‘Mother!’ rang once more,
I saw at last its meaning and its place;
Not the blind passion of the brooding past,
But Mother - the World's Mother - come at last,
To love as she had never loved before
- To feed and guard and teach the human race.

The world was full of music clear and high!
The world was full of light! The world was free!
And I? Awake at last, in joy untold,
Saw Love and Duty broad as life unrolled—
Wide as the earth—unbounded as the sky—
Home was the World - the World was Home to me!

Charlotte Perkins Gilman (1860-1935)
