>The Strength of a Mother’s Heart

>The strength of a mother’s heart is not measureable. 

It is not concrete, static, or inert.
It moves and stretches and contorts to fit the emotion, the situation, or the time our life is at for the moment.

The strength of a mother’s heart keeps us moving forward when we just can’t.
It reminds us not to break, to weep, to fall forever.
It helps us to make the tough decisions, to embrace the opportunity, to survive the tragedy if need be.

The strength of a mother’s heart does not grow with each child.
It is exactly the right size from the beginning.
It easily becomes the place for love, for sorrow, for success and for failure
For however many need it.
  
The strength of a mother’s heart will bring us to our knees.
Its power is uncontrollable, never ending, universal in size.
It’s capacity to love, to hate, to support, to set free
Can overwhelm us to the core.
  
The strength of a mother’s heart is beating in you and me.
It is who we are, what we will always be, what we live for.
It is our greatest strength, our biggest weakness and what makes us one
With every other mother in the world.
  
The strength of a mother’s heart.
How amazing.
