My mom village is composed of moms like me
I help make it what it is
It will be welcoming and neighborly, if I am a good neighbor
It will be receptive and helpful, if I am a giver, not a taker
The mom village will be a place of warmth, humility, and true friendship
only if I remain a humble good friend, and turn away from bitterness and jealousy
It will not judge, belittle, condescend, or favor
if I remain objective, open minded, tolerant, and unprejudiced
If I encourage, inspire, and cheer for its members
then when I need it most, I will be the recipient of the same
The mom village will be a cooperative effort to raise good humans
if I remember it’s only about raising good humans, not competing.
It will be a place of compassion, commiseration, and grace
if I am tender, empathetic, and merciful towards its members
And with my help, dedication, and charity,
it will flourish with humanity, and cultivate the next generation of thriving villagers
if I remember those future villagers are today’s children.
My mom village it composed of women like me
Together, we make it amazing.
