I know it's trendy to pretend that Mother's Day is a holiday
that none of us really care about. We scoff at the idea of such a holiday,
sharing articles that claim that even the woman who invented Mother's Day hated
it and wished she had never created the darn day.
But the truth is, no matter how much we know we don't need a
special brunch or a charm bracelet or a last-minute gift that our husband might
run out and get us from the grocery store, Mother's Day is still a special day,
especially to every mother who is celebrating for the first time this year.
So this year, I'm giving us mothers—all types of mothers—the permission to be celebrated.
