Mothering: a to z of children's work

Do you mother
Do you not?
It's a debate that goes on
I'll throw in my lot

As a children's leader
I mother them all
With love and respect
Boundaries small

God asks us to love
The children especially
So yes I mother them
Mother them faithfully


This is the poem for the letter M of my A to Z of children's work.

Being a Mom has been both the biggest joy and the biggest sorrow of my life.

Sometimes it's hard to find daughter's addiction is flared into full ugliness right now while we await the birth of another daughter's first child.

Ying and Yang.

Sorrow and joy.

Thanks for a lovely link.
