“Thank you, women who are mothers! You have sheltered human beings within yourselves in a unique experience of joy and travail. This experience makes you become God’s own smile upon the newborn child, the one who guides your child’s first steps, who helps it to grow and who is the anchor as the child makes its way along the journey of life.” Letter of Pope John Paul II to Women, June 29, 1995
Gaba/Mom, thank you for being God’s smile upon my life. You have always been a mom and now a grandma first. Well, except for maybe when the Cubs are playing, but no one is perfect (though you come awfully close). I love you. Go Cubs!!!
Happy Mother’s Day!
