Happy Mother’s Day: honoring all who love and care for others
This is an early honorary post for Mother’s Day as next Sunday, we will be busy but wanted to honor those who love and support others. To all the women, moms, grandmothers, aunts, friends, daughters, etc. who show love, support, and encouragement to others. Today (Mother’s Day) is for you.
Being a mother is one of the hardest things I have ever done but also one of the most rewarding aspects of my life. All women, who provide support, care, kindness, etc. to other human beings, today is for you. Caring for others, showing unconditional love and support, and being a good, kind motherly figure impact so many people. For that, I am grateful for all the supportive women in my life today, including those who are family and others who are friends.
Women and their love come in many different shapes and forms. Some women show love by caring for or taking care of others; making food, keeping their homes clean, washing clothes, taking care of children, etc. Some women show love by devoting time to others to help watch grandchildren, to take friends and family to the zoo or the movies, or by just playing board games. Others show love by physically holding, kissing you goodnight on the cheek, whispering “I love you” as you fall asleep.
No one is a perfect mother or mother figure. I struggle with times when I have not been the best mom, reacted the way I should, or spoke in love. But I am trying. I keep trying, learning, and want to be better. Even when I stumble, I know that I can do better next time. To those all trying, working hard, and growing as a mother, keep going. You are doing hard work, you are doing great work.
Today, my wish is for all of you to have a happy and relaxing Mother’s Day. To keep on showing love, even when others are unlovable; to show kindness and the ability to care for others, and continue giving hugs and kisses. You are loved, you are appreciated.
