Mothers Day can be a tricky holiday. It can feel really commercial and pressure-filled. It sucks if you’re not close to your mom. Or your mom has passed away. Or the day passes without an acknowledgement. OR… well, you get the idea.
So I just want to say a great big Happy Mothers Day to everyone who is “mothering” – regardless of whether your child has two legs or four, regardless of whether or not you gave birth to them, and regardless of whether or not they are still with us.
You are a mom too, and you deserve a special boost of love and a great big hug on this day (and every day).
