Larry Kibby: A Mother's Day Message

Sunday, May 9, 2010

Good Morning,

On this Sunday, Mother's Day 2010, I'd like send this message out to all of the Mother's. From Grandmother Moon to Mother Earth, to the Mother's who carry the Unborn, to the Mother's who carry the New born, to the Mother's in the Armed Forces, to the Mother's who live in Poverty, to the Single Mother's, Mother's Incarcerated, Mother's in Rehab, the Abused Mother's, to all the Great-Grandmothers, Grandmothers and Mothers.

For some nine months, you carried us in your womb and then you brought us forth into this world and gave us our first breath of life, our first nourishment and held us close to your heart, provided us with tender care and love.

Through you, we would learn much, you were there for us through our right and wrongs, you were there for us when we got hurt, were in pain, sadness and depression, you were there to help us no matter what.

So today, on this Sunday, May 9th, 2010, we pay honor and tribute to you and for the most part, we understand and forgive you for any wrong you may have done along the way, because if it weren't for you, we wouldn't be here.

Through life there are many ups and downs, but still we remember the good times and yes, we even remember the bad times. Our hearts our sometimes full of happiness and sadness, but that's what life is all about and for the most part, many of us are glad to be here and to have had a Mother by our side.

Mother's, like anyone else, stumble and fall from time to time and it is easy to forgive and to forget, it is something we all must do now and then, because after all Mother's are Human Beings too.

Mother's are a power, they are strong and for the most part, have a beautiful heart, soul and mind. Mother's are wonderful Human Beings, they can be and are intelligent and have been building our Sovereign Nations for time immemorial, they are the life giving force of our people.

So on this Mother's Day, Sunday, May 9th, 2010, to all of the Mother's throughout Indian Country, may your day be blessed with good feelings, good thoughts and lots of happiness and good health. Have a wonderful day and a "Happy Mother's Day!"
