True Meaning of Motherhood in My Opinion ❤

To me, the definition of Motherhood is someone who nurtures. Caring for a child in your womb for months and then giving birth creates a lifelong bond that cannot be broken, even by separation. However, it's the nurturing of a child throughout life that, to me, represents motherhood.
If a child knows that there is someone he or she can count on during difficult times, as well as someone to share the wonderful times with, their development will be enhanced. This nurturing presence is symbolized by motherhood, whether that nurturing is provided by the birth mother, an adoptive parent, a grandmother, an aunt or a father or a step parent .
While some of us are not mothers, all of us are someone's child.
If we had a mother who was neglectful or abusive, it affects us for life. The cause for this neglect or abuse may stem from mental illness, emotional scars from the woman's own childhood abuse or a self-centeredness that is intrinsic to her personality. If the children of these women are fortunate, they may find a more appropriate mother figure in a grandmother, an aunt or even the mother of a friend. If they are not so fortunate, they may struggle throughout life to learn what it is to love and be loved.
We need to understand that no mother is perfect and no human will make the right call for their child's well-being every time.
So today I Wish Everyone a Good Mothers Day , enjoy your day and weekend and realize your doing the best you can do at this time in life and that things are always evolving in the Universe to make it better for all.
Whether you are on your own today or with your family , enjoy the warm existence of yourself as a fabulous person. Take a walk in nature, read a good book, take some photos of things you like. Reach out and smile to another...
It may just make their and your day ❤️
