In honor of

those who are mothers

and those who were mothers

In honor of those who’ve longed to be a mother  

In honor of those who, by way of teaching mentoring or counseling,

have mothered their young charges


but also

For those who have a mother

or had a mother

(and most of us fit into one category or the other)


For those who celebrate this day religiously

For those who are too religious to celebrate it

For those who celebrate motherhood every day


To those for whom this day is a source of joy

To those for whom this day has been a source of pain, confusion

or, perhaps, even emptiness


Wishing you all a meaningful Mothers Day,


Yehuda Krohn, Psy.D.
