Sunday Meditations: Upon Mother's Day

This year, like every other year, we went out as a family for brunch, had an afternoon of buzzing around the house getting things set outside and tidied up, and finished it off with a great family dinner.  Interestingly enough, this ritual is something we do almost every Sunday.  Does our family need a special day to make Mom feel more special than other days?  Probably not.  I think she knows how valued she is by the way her children always come home - one way or another - to spend time with her.  

But Mother's Day isn't just about "your" mom.  It's about every woman - even me, who has no kids and no intentions of having kids.  It's a way to celebrate the women who have nurtured us, and inspired us.  Because everyone, at some point in life, has had a woman who has done just that.  And as a woman, we can aspire to be that person for someone else.
