Materfamilias


My mom with my great-grandmother, my uncle and my grandma - her mom; Mom and I on the beach ©Buesing

Double whammy for my mom: Birthday & Mother's Day! Happy Day, Mama! You are fantastic. Thank you for loving me and having such a big heart and open mind.
I love you.

And Happy Mother's Day to all the other mammas too :) Special shout-out to: my sis, Candace, Andrea, Inken, Mausi, Ela, my mom-in-law, Fi, my godmother Marlis, Marella, Maria, Mariechen and mom-soon-to-be Henny!

The word mother evokes love and nurturing (my mom has those qualities in leaps and bounds). Everyone should mother at least a little. And many do even if they are not a mother in the strict sense of the word. So thank you also to all of you out there mothering and making life better on this planet. The diaspora of modern life makes mothering essential - me thinks.
