Sunday was a very special day for me, it was Mother’s Day. This was the first Mother’s Day I have ever spent away from my Mom.
This gave me a chance to reflect on what motherhood is. My first thoughts were on how I have felt her presence while we’ve been so far apart.
Her teachings have guided me in all my work and how I have carried myself.
I also thought of my other mother, Evelind, who is far away from me.
Evelind’s motherhood is on full display with her child, Warmheart. Her love-filled spirit is soaked into every centimeter of this place.
She took on all of these incredible children as her own. I was amazed to see her give every single kid true understanding and care.
For some of them this was the first time they had felt loved and accepted for who they are.
I know this love first hand because that’s how she made me feel when she took me on as not only an employee but her own son.
I know that every single one of us who have felt her love will pass it on to people in our lives. We will carry it for the rest of our lives.
Thank you Evilind and all of the mothers out there.
What’s motherhood in your life?
Here’s to wishing a normal Mothers Day next year!
Yours Truly, Son Yosi
