Don’t forget to call your mother today!
How did we celebrate?
Today, I did something very out of character. I spent a few hours writing my mother a letter. While this seems like the obvious thing to do, it is nearly impossible for some people to express their gratitude to someone of such personal importance.
Anna Jarvis, the founder of Mother’s Day would have been proud. She, despite being the original founder of the holiday, felt as though Mother’s Day became too commercialized. She later wished that she never created the holiday in the first place. This year, I went back to the roots of what Mother’s Day is, by spilling 23 years of feelings never communicated out loud, into an email.
To all the mothers of the world, this is your day, so kick your feet up and relax!
