The Mother Ganges

mother and son on river sideIn India, the Ganges river is referred to as Mother, not because it leads to all other rivers in the country, but because “Mother” is a term of simultaneous love and respect.  The name Mother is one of both honor and of adoration.  No other word commands this attention and rightly so.  Happy Mothers Day to the millions of mothers in our world who nurture us, guide us, and care for us.
