Mother’s Day Revisited

This is the piece I wrote for Mother’s Day last year. The response was so good I was asked to repost it this year. So here it is:

Today is Mother’s Day in the US. It is a day to honor those of us who have children. But all women are mothers in some sense. We are the lifegivers, the caretakers. Let us today honor not only those women who have children, but also those women who create; whether ideas, or products, or services. We are creative and have the power to make our world a better place to live; we are the ones who care for the sick, the lonely, the abandoned, the forgotten; we are the ones who strive for new ways of doing things; we are the ones to change paradigms. We are awesome!
