I am so blessed to have the most amazing mother. I have been wrapped in her love from the beginning and I still am today.
And, I am doubly blessed to have a mother-in-law, who I love and adore.
I am surrounded by strong, loving, amazing women, who happen to be mothers. And I am surrounded by strong, loving, amazing women, who, by choice or circumstance, are not mothers.
For those for whom Mother's Day is a day filled with joy, I wish you more of the same.
And for those who struggle with this day, because of circumstances of loss or biology or unfulfilled expectations, I wish you peace.
Today is a day I will celebrate the mothers in my world...and put a little extra cushioning around my own heart.
Today I choose to be present in the blessings I have in my life today. I wish the same for you.
Happy Mother's Day.
