Dear Mothers everywhere–
Happy Mother’s Day! I wish you all well. I wish those who are raising children on their own strength and peace and congratulate you for your strength. In a world where life is unfair, you have done your best.
To the fathers who are raising their children alone and standing in for mothers. This is not spoken often but I know many of you are working hard to raise a family by yourself. Stay true. Stay strong.
For the children who have no mother (or any parental figure). Hold on.
Don’t lose heart. Yes, it is okay to cry. Yes it sucks right now but time passes on and circumstances become different. It may not be at the pace you want and it may not be obvious to you, but you can make it!
