Whether we raise human children or not, we are all asked to mother spiritually: To provide safe, loving space for something or someone to realize their potential and come to life. And we also celebrate Flower Communion: Bring a flower to honor what you are mothering this year.

We may be somewhat discouraged because such circumstances may prevent us from doing all that our heart yearns to do in the face of humanity.
How can we be encouraged?
