Mother Eve

 We must be cautious to not let the word "Mother" cause offense or divide us.
 In the scriptures we learn that Eve the mother 
of all living was mother before she even bore children.  
I believe we are all mothers because it is our divine nature and purpose.  
I always felt like a mother even as a young girl 
 because I loved children and mothered my pets.
Motherhood is a woman's right and privilege, and will be more sacred to 
us as we confront it earnestly in prayer 
and with a desire to understand and protect it.

Happy Weekend!
