On My Mind

We Are All Mothers

I am spending the day with my mother. The tables have turned and I am now, in the traditional sense, more of a mother to her than she to me. It makes me realize that you don’t actually have to have children to be a “mother”. Motherhood is a way of being that includes kindness, nurturing, selflessness, etc. Besides my girls, I “mother” my husband, sisters, niece, friends, dachshund — anyone I care about is on this list. So, to everyone, a very happy Mother’s Day.

  • Thankyou for this post and agree with your definition of ‘mother’.
    I’m also mothering my mother but never thought that my life would come to this. I’m greatful for the best mum and it’s now my turn to look after her.
    Happy mother’s day to all women !

  • Its such an honor to have the opportunity to “mother” our parents. My mother has passed, but now I have the opportunity with my mother-in-law, my second mom in every sense of the word. Happy Mother’s Day to all.

  • Love how you’ve articulated this sentiment Preston. I was lucky enough to care for my darling mother before she died and all my life learned from her how to care for those around you like a MOTHER.
    All the best. ❤️

  • What a lovely sentiment. I’m going to share it with both my mother and mother-in-law who keep referring to themselves as “ex-mothers”(!) now that their children have grown and flown.
