What Does a
Mother's Love Mean?

This love is not just emotional or psychological; it is physical, mental, and spiritual. From the physical pain of childbirth to the emotional journey of raising a child and the constant concern for a child’s wellbeing, a mother’s love is an all-encompassing force that shapes the fabric of our being”.

- Unknown

This month I wanted to write about the power and presence of a mother’s love when I came across this quote. Happy Mother’s Day to all the Mothers and those who serve in the role of Mother. Thank you for your love, kindness, protection, guidance, nurturing, prayers, and friendship, but most of all thank you Mom for giving me life

“A mother’s love is multifaceted. It encompasses the fierce protection of a lioness, the gentle guidance of a teacher, and the unconditional love of a true friend. It means being a caregiver, a confidant, and, most importantly, a constant presence. It is a love that knows no bounds, a love that sacrifices without expectation, and a love that endures the toughest of trials.

Words From Kind Kathy

Screen Shot 2024-03-26 at 1.02_edited.jpg

Some time ago, I picked up a journal “Kindness Every Day” from one of my favorite spots, Target or Tarjay as the retail giant where I had a wonderful 15-year career is affectionately called. It’s not a big journal, maybe 4 x 6 in size and hardback, but it’s mighty powerful!

I’d like to share with you what I love about my Kindness Every Day journal. Want to hear it? Here it goes!


The first page tells us about the benefits of Practicing Kindness:
 

Kindness Brings Us Together
Kindness Fights Stress
Kindness Makes Us Happy
Kindness Is Contagious


Next up, there are 4 pages of fun and inspiring Random Acts of Kindness that we can do. Here’s one from the journal that we can put into practice now:

Do something special on Mother’s Day or Father’s Day for a friend who has lost a parent. I’d like to replace the “or” with “and” so we have planned Random Acts of Kindness on the calendar for May and June.

The remainder of the Every Day Kindness journal has lined pages where I can enter the date on the top of the page, and there are thoughtful kindness actions and prompts under the date on many of the pages. Here’s a good one:

Are there any instances of misunderstanding, mistrust, or hostility in your life that you could heal with kindness? Hummmmmm.

Lastly, there are pages of colorful, meaningful quotes sprinkled throughout. I’ll close with these:

“The smallest act of kindness is worth more than the greatest intention.” - Kahlil Gibran

“How beautiful a day can be when kindness touches it!” - George Elliston

Let's continue spreading kindness and positivity every day. If you have stories or acts of kindness to share, reach out to us at kathy@girlpowerocks.org. Together, we can make a difference!

Kindness is our superpower! 💖🌟
