Happy Mother’s Day! If you are a mother, this may be a time you reflect on what it means to be a mother. Every mother is different! Some mothers love to cook gourmet meals for their children, and others prefer to pick up take-out on the way home from work so they will have more time for togetherness. Some mothers love to sing and play instruments, and others are more likely to turn on the radio and dance with their children. Some mothers enjoy gardening, and others prefer their produce from the store. There are as many different styles of mothering as there are mothers. As mothers, it’s important for us to respect and support each other, even if we have different styles. The important thing is that we all love our children dearly.
