All mothers have a unique story to share. If you have kids of your own, you’ll understand that being a parent is quite the adventure! Raising kids is not for the faint of heart. Decisions, sacrifices and that never ending battle with the piles of laundry are what most mothers are facing on a daily basis. If you are reading this odds are you now live outside the roof of which your mother raised you.
For others, you might have already lost your mom and Mother’s Day is an annual reminder of lose. Capturing your mom’s (and grandmother’s) essence is vitally important in how we develop as adults. For us, our mothers can be our ballast; provide stability as we sail along in our journey. This upcoming holiday season, remember, if you are lucky enough, to look at her. Stop. Really look at her. Try to empathize with how her own journey has brought you two to this moment together.
She is special. You are lucky to have her.
