Whether we have been nurtured emotionally, mentally or physically by our natural or mother-figure we all have our stories. For some Mother's Day may conjure up feelings of pain, rejection and neglect. For others, it could serve as a friendly reminder of our childhood bliss and acceptance!

However, those who have participated in our online discussion of Mother's Day:
* Have been honest enough to share their truth in love.
* Have chosen to honor their Mother by accentuating the positives.
* Have committed to growing and learning to become the best Mother that they can possibly be.

The message then for all of us is a reminder that no matter what our circumstances may be, we can still choose to focus on the positives and learn and grow from the negatives.

Thanks to all who posted on our Mother's Day Celebration on facebook. This new poem was inspired by you! Feel free to send this to your MOM.
