Motherhood changes a woman drastically. Her attention, devotion and major part of her love is diverted to her progeny after attaining it. Great tribute to motherhood. Well deserved classic poem of the day.
friendship is the pure source of creation!
In brevity the hue of changing relationships splashed so effectively. Super!
