Wow. How did we do it? When did we do it?
Being a mother is such a tough gig.
It deserves a special day.
A picture perfect day, in May, when the flowers are beginning to bloom, the birds are chirping and the sun is shining brightly with an oh so lovely springtime breeze.
Every mom I know is different. Each has her own ups and downs to cope with. For some, I am amazed at what they have withstood, it is more than I can imagine. But that is just it-
They cope. Maybe they don't want to, maybe they don't choose to. But we moms are built to survive. Born to pick up those pieces, and carry on with life - smiling, hugging, helping and loving along the way.
Mothers deserve a special day.
I get it now.
To all the wonderful, strong, creative, happy, loving mothers that I know. This is your day. Enjoy!
