Feliz Dia de las Madres!

Happy Mother's Day, Mamas!  

I have seen a lot of trending media today tip-toeing very carefully around the feelings of non-mothers (?) as if a celebration of mothers diminishes those who make other choices or have other destinies.  I think it's a bit silly. There are all sorts of ways to be yourself and to contribute on this Earth - celebrating others does not denigrate you.

Mothers contribute so much and deserve to own those contributions like everyone deserves to own their contributions to this orbiting community of souls.  Also, honestly, no one but no one gets the kind of daily denigration and disrespect and blame that society deems reasonable to lay at the doors of mothers so we definitely deserve to celebrate! 

Have a lovely day. Own it and love and raise your voice!
