Mother’s Day weekend is officially here, and I wanted to take a minute to say something to all of you with children, animals, babies in spirit, babies to whom you had to say goodbye, friends or other humans you nurture, as well as those of you with moms, step moms, moms-in-law, moms no longer on this earth but still in your hearts, or just people in your life who are nurturing to you… Every single one of you deserves to be recognized on Mother’s Day. Mother’s Day can feel like a holiday of exclusion, and it shouldn’t be. Motherhood doesn’t only include females who have children. It goes so far beyond that. And I wish all of you a wonderful Mama’s Day.
Every single year when my husband and kids ask me what I want for Mother’s Day, I say some peace and quite and time to myself. And within an hour, I miss my family and we inevitably spend the day together. I wouldn’t have it any other way.
