I say it a little tongue-in-cheek, but today is truly a day to count your blessings. I have the occasion to celebrate both Mother's Day and my birthday today. Which means the dudes in my life are trying as hard as they can to make me feel special. That doesn't mean it goes perfectly, especially with a toddler and a baby in the house, but I do appreciate the effort.
I'm also blessed however, to be surrounded by a community of mothers. Of inspiring ladies and great friends, showing both me and my children what caregiving is. Some of these women I mostly connect with online these days, but it doesn't lessen their impact.
So here's to all the mothers. And another year of this family.
