Though my first instinct is to shout, “HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!”, I thoroughly recognize that some of you may not be feeling so happy today.  Mother’s Day can be a painful reminder of a loss, an unsupportive partner or other struggles of motherhood.  It is today that I hope you will each honor yourself by having patience with yourself and your child(ren); understanding that being a mother is challenging and trying work; acceptance of your thoughts and feelings.  I hope you will brush aside your usual self-criticism and open your eyes and heart to the unconditional love and admiration coming from the gaze of your child(ren). Have a wonderful day!
