What kind of mom did you have when you were young? What kind of care did you receive? We all have our defining stories, based on events that grabbed our attention as we were growing up, whether they were positive, negative or a mix. But in this essay, Gregg Krech provides a broader lens with which to see our lives and the support we received. He proposes that we actually have many moms, and that the recognition that our mothering was a “team effort” is key to a deep sense of gratitude for our lives. His talk is a true celebration of the spirit of motherhood and helps us transcend complaints and resentments that often keep us stuck.
