In this entry I’m going to tell you about a special kind of motherhood: motherhood of the heart or spiritual motherhood.
You may not have heard about it. I coined it, because I couldn’t find a type of motherhood that would suit my kind.
I am a mother of the Heart or a spiritual mama, a woman who deeply loves other human beings of true motherlove, and these people love me back with the devotion and affection that only children — sons, daughters and queer children — have.
And they do call me “mom”.
So, a spiritual mama is at halfway between an adoptive mother and a birth mother: she didn’t give birth to her children, but her love gave birth to a connection to her children’s hearts, who are now linked to hers.
This is a motherhood that’s mostly spiritual and pure. But for that, so precious and cherishable.
