Sunday Evening On Mother’s Day

How do you keep Mother’s Day active and happy when your Mom is no longer around, or your mother-in-law who treated you like her daughter?  Since I only have fur babies, Mother’s Day doesn’t always happen for me.  This one, however, The Husband is diligently working at, trying to show me just how much I am appreciated.

One reason Mother’s Day was important to us when our mothers were alive and very much present, we celebrated everything they were as our Moms, but, as time passed I came to understand we weren’t just celebrating the fact they were mothers, but everything they had ever accomplished as a woman and human being.  We celebrated everything they were, and every woman they were throughout their lives.

Now, The Husband, and several other men we know, celebrate Mother’s Day with their wives, especially if they have children, but also if they happen to be fur mommies.  They celebrate they women we are and recognize us as the other half of the family unit.

So, to everyone out there who is a mother, Happy Mother’s Day.  To all the fur mommies and to every woman and the mothering instinct itself I also say a heart-felt, Happy Mother’s Day.
