Mother’s Day and Covid-19

Ask any mother and they will tell you that it is the hardest job they could have ever taken on. Add in Covid-19 and that job has taken on a new level of responsibility.

Here’s to the Moms who are doing their best under what can only be described as difficult circumstances.

Here’s to the Moms who are juggling working from home and home schooling their kids.

Here’s to the Moms who are sick with Covid and still trying to parent their children.

Here’s to the Moms who are taking care of a sick spouse, partner or loved one while still trying to be a good mother.

Here’s to the Moms who are working on the front lines and have made the tough decision to stay away from home to protect their children.

Here’s to the Moms who are working on the front lines and go through an extended process to make sure that their children remain virus free.

Here’s to the Moms whose children have become sick and/or died from Covid.

Here’s to the Moms who have become single parents due to the virus.

Here’s to the Moms who have lost their jobs and are doing what they can to give their children the best life possible.

Here’s to the future Moms whose children are still in the womb.

Here’s to the grandmothers, aunts and other mother figures who stepped up to the challenge of being the mother to children whose mother cannot be there.

Here’s to the Moms who cannot be with their families today.

Here’s to the Moms who are new mothers in the age of Covid-19.

Here’s to the Moms that are no longer with us due to Covid-19.

Here’s to the Moms who are homeless and must take care of their children under circumstances I wouldn’t wish on anyone.

Here’s to the Moms who left abusive spouses or partners and doing what they need to do to protect their children.

Here’s to the Moms who are no longer with us physically, but remain in our hearts and memories forever.

Most of all, here’s to my mother, my late grandmothers and the multiple generations of mothers in my family who are no longer with us.

Happy Mother’s Day!

Thoughts On Mother’s Day

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.

Happy Mother’s Day

Happy Mother’s Day to all of the mothers in the world, especially my mother.

Being a mother is the hardest job any woman could take on. It is a 24/7, 365 day a year job, regardless of their children’s age.

They carry us for 9 months,  bring us into the world and raise us. They feed us, clothe us, get us to school on time and make sure we complete our homework.

Their wants and needs are put aside for ours.

I wouldn’t be the woman I am today without my mother.

Happy mother’s day Mom. I love you and thank you for everything.
