Today, we celebrate Mom.
Mother's come in all shapes, sizes and colors; but one thing remains true... there is no greater love in the world than that of your Mother. Much like snowflakes that fall in winter, there are no two Mother's exactly alike. Some Mother's face the challenge alone, some Mother's share the challenges with their husbands or partners. Some Mother's work two jobs to keep their children fed and clothed, some Mother's work in the home day in and day out to achieve the same result. Some Mother's are present each and every day, some Mother's have since passed and we hold on to dear memories of them.
Regardless of where your own Mother falls in the spectrum of life, there is no other love than that of a Mother. It's special. It's forgiving. It's unconditional. Even if you're in a situation where it doesn't seem like there is a lot of love, you can bet there is.
Mother's are special people, with special talents, with special hearts. Over the years, I've come to realize just how special that Mother's love is. It's easy to take a Mother's love for granted; but I hope you'll take a moment today to stop and reflect on how special that love is.
To all the Mom's in the world, we honor you. Happy Mother's Day.
