Our mothers are amazing. They carry us until we are ready to enter the world. They feed us, they house us, they love us and they support us throughout our lives.
If I had to name one woman who I looked up to, it is my amazing mother, who can only be described as superwoman. Looking back, I don’t know how she did it and still does it today. She was part of the first generation to “have it all”: a career, a marriage and children. After working an eight hour day, she came home, made dinner, helped us with our homework, took care of other miscellaneous tasks before going to bed and repeating the same list of responsibilities the next day.
Some days, when I come home, the only thing I want to do is lay on my couch and watch TV, even when I know that I can’t. I don’t know how millions of women come home from work everyday and find the extra energy to take care of their spouses/partners and their kids instead of just saying f*ck it.
To all of the mothers in the world, both human and fur mothers, Happy Mother’s Day. For the endless and sometimes underappreciated work that you do, may you receive all of the love and appreciation that you rightly deserve.
