broadening our definition of mothering

happy Mother's Day to
those who mother seedlings that produce boutiful harvest in the fall,
the ones who nurture a mix of bechamel sauce and dry pasta into
lasagna that makes everyone go mmmmmmm,
let's celebrate those who mother groups into action, propelling them
towards actions of justice and grace.
motherhood is not only biology, some who have borne children
are not mothers.
mothers are those who work for something bigger than themselves,
birthing new ideas through creativity and hard work.
let us also celebrate them on Mother's Day.
