Happy Mother's Day to all you moms, grandmothers and great-grandmothers.
Even though, on occasion, your families may thank you for making their favorite meal or helping them with their homework, today is the official day to recognize all the tireless hours and literal blood, sweat and tears you put in to helping your little ones grow and your bigger ones flourish.
Today you are recognized for all the sleepless nights, countless diaper changes, never ending loads of laundry... for all the times you gave in and said "yes" at Target, all the navigating to school and soccer and art classes... for your incredible mind reading skills, painless bandaid removal strategies... for all the times you knew just what to say and exactly what they needed.... for all the broken hearts you (tried) to mend and the tears you wanted so desperately to dry.
Yes, for all that. And more.
Today is your day.
Call your moms in whatever form they come in and take a moment to thank them. When you've done that, treat yourself to a nap. Trust me when I say, there is nothing better than a Mother's Day Nap. (I'll go first!)
Thank you, mom. I love you Mom-Mom. Always and forever. xoxo
I would love to help you capture your own multi-generational portrait. Time is fleeting, do it now.
