I just wanted to pop in and say Happy Mother’s Day to all of you amazing mamas! It really is an incredible honor to know some of you through this little space, and to be able to share my life as a mom through here as well. Thank you for all that you do!
My friend sent me this powerful piece, and it really moved me. I was raised by a single mother, she raised five of us, actually. I know it wasn’t easy, or glamorous, and that the way we as a community look upon mothers as a whole is pretty disappointing. Especially, when discussing single mothers. Today, most of my friends and even my sister- my best friend, is a single mother. Their jobs are never done, and they rarely get to tap out or even get praised. My hat goes off to all of them, including my own mother. Love you to the moon, mommy.
