We Wouldn’t Be Here Without You #841  

by Sue Hawkes

I’m celebrating mothers today and all days of the year. 

I’m grateful I’ve had an incredible mom, amazing Edina mom (pseudo adoptive mom with no stretchmarks), and a fantastic mother-in-law. 

Whether yours taught you what to do or what not to do, they informed who you are as a person as well as what matters. They carried you, literally and figuratively, for a period of time. 

It’s impossible to have a child and not see them as an extension of yourself in the world. It’s both humbling and challenging. Taking a day to connect, reflect, and honor your mom is an annual opportunity.  

What can you do to intentionally appreciate the life you have been granted by your perfectly imperfect mom? 

Thank you to all the “moms” out there. Whether biological, without stretch marks, inherited, adopted, or filling the role by choice. It matters. Moms matter.  

We wouldn’t be here without you.
