Happy Mother’s Day!
I am working today and I am writing this during my break on the inpatient unit.
My mother is a woman who marches to her own beat.
Growing up, she did not really believe in Mother’s Day. My mother used to always say, “every day is Mother’s Day!”
Working in mental health, I can safely say that mothering is a sensitive area for many people and emotionally complex.
For me, mothering is about nurturing, comforting and caring for other living beings. Every one is a mother, with or without biological children.
Wishing everyone a beautiful, caring and nurturing day!
