I think Mother’s Day is not only for mothers.Families are of so many kinds these days that women besides mothers can be honored on Mother’s Day. Even men can be honored – single parents are both father and mother to their children. How about the Grandparents?
This reminds me that I have heard many people of the Jewish faith explain that God is both male and female and therefore, both Father and Mother to mankind.
Have any here benefited from the love and wisdom of a woman that was not his or her mother or grandmother and did you say, “Thank you” ?
Many have done so in a number of ways. And how about your single Dad or single Grandad that raised some readers? The single grandfather is one parent that is not often spotlighted and Mother’s Day and/or Father’s Day are inviting opportunities for thanks.
So what is a mother? Some individuals act as a mother to children and youth, but are not recognized. We can change that.
