I was too busy celebrating with my family yesterday to get to this but please accept my wishes today!

My thoughts go to all of you who took the time to celebrate motherhood. Maybe you celebrated your children, maybe they celebrated you. Maybe you are a father awaiting Fathers’ Day while you celebrated Mom. Maybe you celebrated your day as a mom because you have been mothering somebody for some time.

Do not let go of one day that could be used to celebrate all the joys of caring for children in whatever way you do it. Recognizing mothers and fathers can mean honoring all who care for children in big ways and small ways. We would hardly begrudge Mother Theresa the honor of mother, why do that to ourselves. If you take care of children, nieces, nephews, god-children, neighbors, grandchildren, or parents take a moment to be filled with the joy of it.
