Here's wishing a happy Mother's Day to all of the moms who read this blog. I made sure to call mom after things got quiet at work. She had my sister and her family, except for her oldest, who was hanging around college to attend some friends' graduation. Mom is doing really well, as always, and we talked for almost an hour, until my phone battery ran out.
I appreciate the hard-work that mothers do... sometimes, they are too busy working to spend time with the kids, sometimes they are extremely protective and intensely involved with their kids' day-to-day activities. The vast majority of moms are trying their best to care for their children, often in the face of hostility to the needs of mothers, especially working moms.
