Wishing mothers everywhere a day of peace, love, and appreciation.
Amidst all the celebration, I also must take a moment to acknowledge the mothers around the world who have lost children (whether recently or in the distant past)---to war, to famine, to accidents, to violence, to addiction, to disease, to suicide. Whatever the reason, those mothers who are bereft also deserve our love and best wishes today and every day. May the flowers, hearts, candy, and cheer of this Mother's Day energetically feed the souls of those mothers who are less than happy today, unfulfilled, or living in loneliness and isolation. To all of the homeless mothers, refugee mothers, suffering mothers, the burdened and the infirm, deepest wishes for peace and healing. And to all of those whose mothers have already left this world, similar wishes, now and always.
