Blessing for All the Experiences of Mothers

Diverse Children
A Mother's Day Blessing

to all those who offer mothering love in so many ways,

to birth mothers, adopted mothers, stepmothers, foster mothers, chosen mothers, grandmothers and godmothers,

to soon-to-be mothers and those yearning to be mothers,

to those of all genders who offer tender care and understanding to children,

to all who are missing their mothers and those grieving for their mothers,

to broken-hearted mothers grieving for their children, gone too soon,

and to all who carry pain in their hearts as mothers or because of mothers,

we pray that you will know God's presence with you
as you mark this day, whatever it means for you this year,
joy or grief, hope or fear, sorrow or celebration, frustration or delight.

May you know God’s love enfolding you with all the love you offer to others, and more.
God bless you, today and every day.
