A Day For Women

May 13, 2013 at 12:11 pm (Uncategorized) (, )


Yesterday was Mother’s Day, a day where we typically celebrate the woman who gave us life.  I know that for me personally, I’ve been blessed with the best mother I could have ever asked for, not to mention loving grandmothers and caring aunts.  And as awesome as all of these women are, I’m reminded that there are many types of Mother’s who also deserve appreciation.

Step-mothers, foster mothers and adopted mothers are obvious here, because clearly they’re moms too.  Not so obvious are the mothers who no longer have their children because of illness, injury, accidents or something else, or the women who desperately want to be mothers but for whatever reason are unable to do so.  There are also the women who had a child at one point but then lost them before they ever even met them, and the women who could have been mothers but decided they weren’t quite ready for the challenge.  There are children with two mothers and children with two fathers who also serve as mothers.

Thanks, Mom!

There are also women who had just plain shitty mothers.  Some people should not have children but that doesn’t mean that they won’t.  There are women who were raised motherless or wish they had been and there are women who have lost their mothers altogether.  In short, while we all have a mother, there are as many different relationships that can stem from that as there are people walking around on this planet.

I’m not a mother myself so I won’t pretend to have any idea what it’s like to push a human being from my vagina and then try to raise it in today’s day and age.  Hell, I’m not sure I’ll ever know what that’s like.  But I do know that all of the good mothers out there completely blow my mind and are people who I look up to every day.  So to all the moms who love their children – kudos to you!
