Mother’s Day is such a cool holiday because not only do we get to celebrate our moms, but also our sisters, aunts, cousins, mother-in-laws & friends that are moms. Let’s face it, being a mom has to be the hardest job in the world. I am always so awestruck by those who make it look easy. I have a dog and a cat and I can barely remember to feed them everyday….so there’s that.
Here’s to you moms everywhere. The mom’s with toddlers we see out to dinner not able to eat a single morsel because their little one is having a breakdown. The mom’s we see at Whole Foods at 9pm because they had no other time in their day to get groceries. The mom’s who have teenagers – (shout out to my sister whose little one has senioritis right now (“a supposed affliction of students in their final year of high school or college, characterized by a decline in motivation or performance.”) I’m not sure my sister has slept through a night since her teenager got his license!
And finally to my mom. This year has been a tough one, filled with hospitals, rehab stays and far too many doctors visits. All through it she’s been a trooper. Like the energizer bunny she keeps on going (just a lot slower than before) and leads by example. She always taught us that whatever the challenge we face we face head on with grace and humor. And wine. Cannot forget about the wine.
Happy Mother’s Day to all!
