Our team here at Grotto Network extends Mother’s Day greetings to all the moms out there.We do so with a sense of gratitude and with the awareness that while today is certainly a day to celebrate, we know some of you are hurting and may find the celebration burdensome. In both of these spaces, we are here with you.

We say thank you.

Thank you for all of the ordinary, and often repetitive tasks, you undertake.Thank you for the deep love that turns these tasks into something beautiful.Thank you for the unique gifts you offer the world. You enhance the human side of culture that appears to have grown dark.Thank you for saying “yes” to new life. You provide hope to the world by cultivating and nourishing life from its first moments.Thank you for who you are and for all that you do.
