Mothers’ Day – it’s always a bit nostalgic for me.
I think about my mom, my mother-in-law, my grandma, all passed away now; my sisters and my friends who mothered with me when we had young children; all the moms I know and have worked with in my role as a Parent Educator; and now, my own special daughter-in-law, loving mom to a two- and- a- half- year- old and ready to give birth to their second child.
We can acknowledge how mothering has definitely changed over the years in so many many ways – but what always remains so powerful, I believe, is an intrinsic bond that weaves among moms of all generations.
For it is mothers who share such a special experience and understanding of the joys and the pain, the demands and the gentle love, the fatigue and the exhilaration that each of us have known.
And so, I warmly remember and celebrate the mothers in my life- and encourage you to celebrate yourself!
Happy Mothers’ Day!
