Happy Mother’s Day

Heart-shaped Ribbon - Mother's Day

Wishing every mother out there, man or woman who has taken on this responsibility, a very happy Mother’s Day. It’s a huge deal being a parent. You’re responsible for a life, a person, keeping them safe and teaching them. Guiding them and yet still allowing them to become who they were meant to be. It’s scary, it’s time consuming, it’s exhausting and it’s amazing.

I don’t speak from personal experience as I’m not a parent, and don’t plan to be – life choice. But I’ve watched some damn amazing folks struggle and persevere through ups, downs and being side swiped. They have my gratitude, and appreciation. They are champions in my book. These people are raising the next generation the only way they know how, no instruction manual and by the seat of their pants. It can’t be easy, and yet I’ve heard it’s the most rewarding “job” around. To see your child flourish, to grow, and to come into their own.

So to all the mother’s out there, whoever you are, wherever you may be now, whatever your sex is – we salute you. You definitely don’t get enough recognition day to day, especially in the world we now live in, which makes it harder every single day to do your job, but you’re making it work. You are appreciated, you are amazing, and you are loved. Now … go have a nap, you deserve it.
