Happy Mother’s Day!

Happy Mother’s Day to you!

Typically on a day like today in the US, we set out to celebrate all of the women that have given birth, about to give birth or some variation thereof.  In England, where my husband is originally from, they celebrate Mothering Sunday. I love that term “Mothering” as for me, it encapsulates a higher meaning to motherhood than just giving birth. It speaks to the art of caring, nurturing and encouraging. It’s true that giving birth (or some variation thereof) makes you a mother, but so do a lot of other actions.

I wanted to take a moment to thank all of the people that in one way or another have “Mothered” me. In one way or another you have touched many hearts, help others to reach new heights and have brought joy to this world.  For that I honor you today.

Thank you to:

  • Sisters
  • Bus drivers

    My Amazing family. They have taught me more than I thought possible. I am blessed they choose me to be their mom.
  • Aunts
  • ALL friends
  • Sister-in-laws
  • Doctors
  • Lunch ladies
  • Guidance Counselors
  • Nurses
  • Co-workers
  • Bosses
  • Mother-in-laws
  • Neighbors
  • Colleagues
  • Teachers
  • Nieces
  • Cousins
  • That super nice lady at Target
  • Networking friends
  • My children’s friends’ moms
  • My grandmothers
  • My own mother
  • My beautiful children

Each of you are inspiring and have taught me significantly. Thank you for “Mothering” me, for loving me, caring enough about me to tell me the truth and for helping me blossom.
