The news this week of three young women found alive after having been missing for ten years is simply astounding, uplifting and miraculous. We don’t want to consider the horrors that those women endured while held captive, but we know it was awful and basically unimaginable. We are better off to think of the joy the families of the women are experiencing now, learning that their loved ones are in fact alive and will for the most part be ok. I, like any other mother, shudder at the thought of one of my children disappearing. I, like any other mother, have hugged my boys just a little tighter this week and fought against those overprotective leanings that wants to keep them all home and away from the potential dangers of the real world. I, like any other mother, will cherish this Mother’s day with my children, and thankfully with my own mother. It’s all about the Mother, so this week’s WARRIOR WEDNESDAY is Mothers! It makes no difference if you mother biological children, adopted children, or step-children, you are blessed with the chance to nurture, guide, teach, and love impressionable young souls. We do the best we can and that’s the only thing that matters. On the way to Grandma’s yesterday, one of my boys asked me what it’s like to be a mother. I answered that it was exhilarating and terrifying all at the same time. He seemed to understand. Then my little one announced his gratitude for not being able to be a mother so he didn’t have to have his stomach or “magina” cut open. A vocabulary lesson quickly followed along with my gratitude at being able to tell my boys that I am thrilled to be their mother and then having the gift of hugging my mom, who was waiting at the door. If you are a mother, if your mom is still with you or not, you are a WARRIOR or blessed to know one, so we honor you on this WARRIOR WEDNESDAY!
