Surprisingly, Mother’s Day will be here in just a couple of weeks. With our delayed springtime in Vermont this year, it hardly seems possible. You may want to plan ahead and send a Mother’s Day card to your own mother, a special aunt who mothered (not smothered) you, a friend who lost their Mom, your sister who has kids, a stepmother, friends who are raising children. Being a mother is a hard, yet joyful, task. Let’s honor all of the women in our lives who have helped to raise kids….and done very well at it! Happy Mother’s Day.
