Happy Mother’s Day


Happiest Mother’s Day to you, from my family, to yours.


Every woman I know is a mother.

Mothering, caring, loving, in so many different ways, to oh so many.

To that end, cheers to the men, the uncles, the fathers, the grandfathers, who also mother right along with us.

I was born a mother.

When I was young I was first a sister, then babysitter, cousin, auntie, devoted friend.

But I always and forever dreamed, and yearned to be a mother.


Which makes celebrating family and friends today all the more beautiful.

I am exploding with gratitude.


Whomever you mother, however you spend your day, may it be filled with love and laughter.

And so much happily ever after.

Cheers to mothers, around the world, caring and tending every minute of every day.
