This weekend we will celebrate Mother’s Day and as I began to think about all the moms out there I realized that I won’t be with two of my girls this weekend.
Karma kicks me in the butt all the time!
I haven’t even seen my own mom on Mother’s Day in 23 years.
Some of us have lost our mothers and some have never known them. Some of our fathers are the best moms we could ever ask for and some of us have grandparents, aunts and neighbors who have stepped into that role. If you look around, you may even find that there are a whole host of “moms” in your village who would love to celebrate with you.
My oldest will be working in Boulder at the nursing home. It makes me smile to think about all the elderly women she will bless this weekend with her beautiful smile and her warm heart. She will love on them and celebrate them as part of her own little village. It doesn’t matter that they aren’t her actual family.
My middle daughter will also be working and then having dinner with her boyfriend’s family in Nashville. At least another mother will get to hug my girl and they are part of her village right now.
The reality is that wherever you are or whomever you are with take the time and celebrate. They may not be a mother, they may not be your mother, but they are obviously part of your village.
Happy Mother’s Day!
