" ... our mothers are our first landscape,
our original terrain,
creating and sheltering us in the space of their own body.
When we have mothers who know, or learn along the way,
how to keep creating the landscape for us, and with us -
when they can fashion a terrain that provides both sanctuary and
the freedom to find the contours of our own life -
that is gift indeed."
May we today give thanks to all the women who have fashioned the contours of our life.
