in the beginning,

there was light, God created the light, and the light was good.

in the beginning,

there was Earth, God created the Earth, and the Earth was good.

in the beginning,

there were mothers, God created mothers, and mothers were good.

they say God created everything in her image —

light, Earth, mothers

and more. I can believe it because, everyday, in your visage

I see light, Earth, and God. You are love and it’s like no other.

You — all mothers — serve, love, protect, and encourage, you’re the bridge

between the divine and the mortal. God created mothers.

You are a mother, MY mother

for 30 years now — you’ve been through it all —

highs & lows, taken the blows, never letting the other fall.

To see you grow, thrive, rest, be — means the world to me — my MOTHER.
