What an interesting celebration. Isn’t everyday mother’s day? Doesn’t it apply to both men and women? The nurturing safety of a hug or a kind word when you need it most? I do realize men are at a disadvantage in that they cannot give birth however there is much mothering to be done after birth.
I spent my mother’s day trying to help coordinate an hour visit with a very dear friend and her daughter in our local airport. If you have seen “Up In The Air” you know the one. My friend’s daughter left for work in January and the 2 of them have been apart for the last 5 months….a VERY long time. Our daughter’s are best friends which makes this story even sweeter.
I was honored to help connect mother and daughter. However, we had company….dad, sister and other friends. It was a fast meeting and the entourage in the airport was entertaining.
I think about all of the families separated from loved one’s during Mother’s Day and other holidays. The space leaves an empty spot that can only be filled with love. The love of friends, family and those closest to us.
I hope you had a wonderful weekend, a joyous Mother’s Day and most of all – I hope you remember to love and be thankful for the love of other.
Have a GREAT Week!
