A Mother's Day Write

"I should sell my tongue and buy a thousand ears when that one steps near and begins to speak."
- Rumi

In addition to one's birth mother, many individuals provide mothering influences over a lifetime. Consider those who have provided nurture, discipline, and affection.  

Recall ways they affected aspects of your development.  

Write three examples of "words of wisdom" that created a foundation for your value system.

Delve into three admonishments that made you reconsider your future actions.

Examine three nurturing experiences. 

Return to memories and weave them into what you offer as a result of your mothering. 

How have you translated and transferred the skills you gained from your influences?
