Excerpts from the poem Her Words by Anna Hempstead Branch
For mother’s everywhere – by birth or by heart – who inspire children the world over with beautiful words of Truth, of grace, of forgiveness – both the giving type and the seeking type.
For those women who offer words of love, of heroic deeds, of thankfulness. Words of encouragement, words of caution, words of advice. Words that mold the children whom they are spoken to. The words matter.
To the motherly women in my life who have breathed words of encouragement to me – thank you.
But especially to my own mom, who filled our childhood with delightful stories and continues to encourage us. Love you mom!
Happy Mother’s Day!
