It’s no coincidence that Mother’s Day is celebrated in May, as it shares the spring season. Mother nature births new life, more sunshine, longer days, and blooming flowers all around us; playing a symbolic role of motherhood.
This is such an important day, to celebrate women for so many reasons. Moms come in all different types, and we want to reach out and recognize all moms out there.
Having the title of “mother” is such a wonderful beautiful thing, and although it’s just one word, it means so much. Being a mom means you’re a friend, a leader, a teammate, a shoulder to cry on, a hand to hold. A role model, a bearer of wisdom and advice. A safe haven, and a familiar face in the crowd. Being a Mom can also mean that sometimes you’re the bad guy, sometimes you’re the bearer of bad news, or the one that has to make the tough decisions. But, being a Mom also means that you’re full of love, warmth, kindness, compassion, and strength.
You’re capable of so many things, on so many levels. No matter whether you tear your body apart to birth your own children, or whether you decide to mother a child who is a complete stranger and in need of a family and home. Single mothers, soon to be mothers. Mothers of 1 child, mothers of 10 children. Grandmothers and great grandmothers. You all have one great thing in common. You’re all Moms. And you are truly appreciated for all that you do.
So from all of us here at Millyard Studios, to all of you moms out there, we are wishing you a truly Happy Mother’s Day!
