Mother’s day …
Somehow, I do believe that even the most disabled, the most severe, have an innate sense of who mom is. They do not have the voice, nor the ability in any form, to show appreciation for all you do. Neither daily, nor on this (in my and my mom’s mind, inappropriate) single day of the year. But, nonetheless, I believe there is an appreciation. There must be, there should be. To those who question their abilities and their quality of motherhood, but who nonetheless rise to the occasion, every day, celebrate your actions. Happy Mother’s Day.
And they also know who Dad is – especially when Dad is doing the job of mom as well, and he rocks.
I second that, Erika!
Whether aimed at me or not, thank you, this is lovely.
Fathers whose role in parenting is not confined to gender stereotypes should have their own day too.
Please send my regards to your mother, SD. She has my respect and admiration. Believing like you that a child has innate knowledge of that connection. (Father’s Day is in June, emma.) Indeed parenting is worth noting everyday.
Thanks for the good words. My mom taught me a lot …
