Happy Mother's Day!

I am sending out Happy Mother's Day thoughts and good wishes to all of you who have ever mothered a child. You do not have to have given birth to be able to mother. Many times it is the teacher, the friend, a grandmother, or the aunt who steps up and mothers the child. What is important is that each child out there in this world has a safe haven and someone looking out for them. That they are everything to somebody.

I am one of the fortunate ones. I have had a wonderful Mother my entire life. She has been a glowing example of everything that is right in mothering. Even now she knows how to nudge me in the right direction. Being a mother is no easy task. It is full of worry, sleepless nights, and double thinking your decisions. However, in the end it is one of the most exceptional experiences I have ever had. It is a gift that definitely keeps on giving. It has been an honor. I hope each and every one of you has a spectacular day.
