If you’re a mom, Happy Mother’s Day.
If you’re about to be a mom, Happy Mother’s Day.
If you aren’t yet a mom but want to be, Happy Mother’s Day.
If your mom isn’t here but you wish she were, Happy Mother’s Day.
If you’re not sure whether being a mom is for you, Happy Mother’s Day.
If you never had a biological mom in your life but someone who acted like a mom, Happy Mother’s Day.
If you feel a LOT of complicated emotions on this day and don’t know what to do, Happy Mother’s Day.
It’s a happy day, a rough day, a sad day, an exciting day, a fun day, a painful day, and a million other emotions. So no matter where you are on the “mom” spectrum or how you celebrate, I hope you found peace and happiness in your time yesterday.
And to my mom, I am who I am because of your love, guidance, laughter, rules, and example. I can’t imagine a better mom for me and I’m so glad I get to call you mine.
Happy Mother’s Day.
