I think it is great that we have a day to appreciate, and honor the women who raised us; and  this Mother’s Day I honor and celebrate the strong women who have lost their children, and those who cannot have children for reason beyond their control. I also honor and celebrate the women who have lost their mothers and can no longer celebrate this day with them.

I celebrate being a mother every day, because to me it is a gift and I am blessed to have received this gift and everyday I strive and pray to do the best that I can to my children (who I love very much) and do right by them.

Happy Mother’s Day!
