Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms I know, and to all the women who make a positive impact in this world, whether they’re doing it for their children or for other people’s children. Happy Mother’s Day to the grannies, the aunties, the cousins, and the BFFs. Remember that not all moms get to sip mimosas and nosh on bacon sandwich on Mother’s Day. If you can’t hug your own mother, hug someone else’s. If you can’t pick up the phone and make that call, then send up a good though for the person who birthed you, the person who raised you, and all the women who had a hand in making you the person you are today.
