Encouraging Heroes. You can be one too.

Happy Mother’s Day, Heroes! Yes, you. I call you a hero because you are one. No, not the mother behind you.


You gave birth to that child. Or perhaps you opened your home to one (or more!). You make sure the needs are met. You make sure the child is loved. That makes you a hero. It’s that simple.

So celebrate today. You are a Mom. That is a big deal. And I am proud of you. If nothing else, have a private moment with a cup of your favorite coffee or tea, and maybe a bite of something sweet. Just to remind you that you are special.

And, in celebration of Mother’s Day and Moms everywhere, I get to give away a deluxe copy of the book Pat the Bunny. Do you remember that book? Such fond memories for me. I remember someone gave it to my sister when she was a baby, and I read it many times. Possibly even with her…I don’t exactly recall. I was 6, after all.

It may seem strange, but what I do remember is a particular smell the book had. It SO makes me think of babies! What’s your strongest memory of this book?
