Self Portrait Mothers Day
My excellent daughters feted me last night. The best gift I received was a comment about how the mistakes of early motherhood are forgiven as we all continue to grow and expand in wisdom, patience and love. Thank goodness for that as I was a too-young stressed out single mother who was frustrated and overwhelmed much of the time. My gift to young mothers is this: do your best, forgive your errors, make sure you hug them every day and tell them you love them a lot. You won't be perfect but you'll likely be good enough. And Happy Mother's Day.
