Today I was reminded that, for some of us, this day is hard. Some are faced with failings as parents and broken relationships. Some of us have mothers or children who've died; some were never able to have children. Maybe our hopes for our relationship with our mother don't match up with our reality.
I woke up to coffee in bed. Abbott made eggs and toast for my breakfast.
My step father-in-law left me what was perhaps the nicest phone message ever, in appreciation of my mothering work.
And the homemade cards and other efforts to make me feel loved, honored and respected from my family! - they made my heart sing.
Sending love to you today, whatever your circumstances.
