For those of us who have lost our mothers..the memories and wisdom she's passed on allow us to stand in good stead and this day of recall serves as a reminder of how blessed we were to have them before they transitioned. I've been reading the various tributes to motherhood on other blogs and there is one in particular, Black Nouveau Woman that focuses on the here and now and how to make this day..truly special regardless of that knock on the door or phone call.
Before I close...let us not forget to honor those women who took on the role of mother for so many of us. She may have been a close family friend, cousin, aunt, grandmother or a stranger with a loving and giving heart. A splendid day to all!
