I’m one of the many who’s been adding more Van Halen tracks to their playlist lately.
With all the horrid things that have happen this year (and those hits keep coming), I wanted to take a moment to focus on some of the positives that have made their way down the 2020 conga line of doom. I want to begin by saying my heart goes out to all of those we have lost to COVID-19. It’s a tragedy that was completely avoidable. I wear a mask, clean it often, and encourage others to take the virus seriously so we avoid losing anymore loved ones.
I hope you were all able to enjoy Mother’s Day, spending it with those that meant the most to you. Whether it was the woman who gave birth to you, adopted you, or raised you; each woman in your life is special and deserving of the title “Mother.” This, of course, extends to those newer Moms out there who are newly pregnant or have young children. Enjoy the ride, take too many pictures and spend as much time as you possibly can with them. They grow up too fast, and you can’t makeup for the lost time.
With all the special gifts we can exchange over any holiday, the best gift to give is self esteem. Too many women of all ages are suffering, sometimes in silence due to not feeling adequate. You are all capable, beautiful, smart, and worthy! Remind yourself each day, and remind those wonderful women around you too. Let’s work hard to keep that gift going! Fresh flowers are always a bonus too.
