In my life manual, you don’t have to have human kids to be a mom. If you tend to your doggie, goldfish, nieces or nephews, plants, co-workers or even the kids down the street – it all counts – happy mom’s day to you!
You also don’t have to be female to be a mom. These days, the roles of moms and dads cross over the line so much that there are a lot pops out there who deserve a mom’s day hug too.
I also want to send a kudos to my mom, my mom-in-law, my sister-in-laws, my sister, my cousins, my co-workers and all my blogger/message board comadres!!! Mothering is no easy feat, thank goodness we come with natural maternal instincts to guide us through the bumpy spots.
So to all of you (no matter what shape or form you come in): Happy Mother’s Day!! Take time to pamper yourself today. You deserve it!
