What if Mother’s Day Isn’t About Your Mom?

Mother’s Day, in every culture that celebrates, started as an event of community strengthening and reunification. 

In Europe and the UK, it was about reunifying people to the Church. In the US it started from a movement to reunify mothers with their kids. Called Mother’s Day Work Clubs, these were days of parenting and domestic lessons to strengthen families. Just after the Civil War, we got closer to the Mother’s Day we think of today, in an effort to reunify our country.

Who was Ann Reeves Jarvis and what does she have to do with you? Watch this:

Our society is navigating a LOT of change.

Change requires resilience. Who in your life has created a safe space for you to develop resilience by offering you empathy and support?  If it was a mom, that’s awesome. If it wasn’t, I’m sorry for any pain that’s caused you.

As you come out of a week that seemed to be all about flowers and brunch, I offer this perspective.

We celebrate Mother’s Day to honor those who can

  • See the bigger picture
  • Nurture
  • Gather and share wisdom
  • Use their experiences for good
  • Effect positive change

Who has that been in your life? Who have you done all of that for in theirs? Leave a comment below and let me know, I’d like to honor them with you.
