Happy Mother's Day to all celebrating today and all others who just need a positive thought or wish. Remember you don't have to be a Mother to celebrate because if you are a woman you are mothering someone, loving them and trying to help, that is what mothering is all about.
If you are missing your Mother today, or watching your ill mother succumb to another stage of her life, well I am sending you love because I have been in your shoes and it is hard.
If you never had a loving and caring Mother, I am sending you love. Hopefully you had a wonderful Aunt, MIL, Sister or friend to take up the slack.
If you love and care for animals and give them the best life possible, I am sending you love and thanks for taking care of those in need.
If you volunteer, teach, or simply connect with the little people next door you are making a difference in someones life. You should be applauded.
To all of you Aunts out there that give their nieces and nephews unconditional love, I am sending you love, too. You never know how much that impacts a child's life. I am looking at you Claudia. Aunt Claudie talks to Little Buddy almost every night on the phone as I stretch out his arms, legs and back. She is the best distraction of all.
And as far as friends, well we all take care of each other, mothering each other in our own way. I am wishing all of you a wonderful day and thanking you each for the important part you play in my life.
Happy Mother's Day!
