We designate one Sunday in May to honor mothers but for some of us Mother’s Day is literally every day. Those whose mothers were taken from them when they were young, whether by death or divorce or something else. We are left to wonder what our moms would think of us today, whether or not we are the person she hoped we’d be. We may never get to find out.
It’s that wondering that keeps our moms with us and why it’s Mother’s Day for us, not just today, but every day of our lives.
