It's almost not Mother's Day anymore.
I never post on the weekend. But I wanted to today.
A shout-out to my mom, who doesn't know I blog, doesn't know what a blog is, and who isn't quite sure how this internet thing really works. But mom, I know I called you tonight and we talked for a while, and we sent cards and all that, but I just wanted to send waves out to you again, and say I love you. I'm sorry that your brother died yesterday. I cried on the phone. 'Cause I'm your daughter, and I felt so little. And you were the mom, so damn strong. Your strength is something I'm honing, every day, as a mother myself, and I learn from you. Still learning. Always will.
To you out there who are mothers, have mothers and stepmothers and mother-figures, have some or no thoughts yourself to being a mother, or making someone else a mother, I say, Have A Wonderful Day.
To my husband and children, I say, thank you for making this day so special.
To Mother Earth, who sustains us, I say, my eternal gratitude.
