I only have my kids for half the day today, so I took off on a Mother’s Day jog to clear my head.
Mother’s Day is a complicated day for lots of people. For those who have lost their mom, never had a mom, or are disappointed in the mom they were dealt. For those who have lost babies or were not able to have them, or maybe aren’t connected to the babies they birthed. And for a million other reasons, it can be a tough day - especially when the day is universally represented as bright and full of flowers and chocolates.
Hugs to those who might not be feeling bright and chocolate-y today, for whatever reason
