Through A Mother's Eyes

A Mother’s Eyes Are Windows To God’s Love

Who can forget the scene in Passion of the Christ, when Mary runs towards baby Jesus who has fallen on the floor and in the same manner runs towards her son as he faces his divine destiny? There is no love like a mother’s love and we look to you the readers of Boomshots Magazine to define motherhood. In this article we posted responses to a simple Mother’s Day prompt, interspersed with some sentimental tunes.
