Happy Friday Everyone!

I want to wish all the mothers out there a very Happy Mother’s Day on Sunday! I hope you enjoy precious time with your families, and if you are not near hopefully you can celebrate with a phone call, video chat or Skype session. Oh, the joys of technology to keep us connected! Hopefully this is one time where you can use it for a celebration, not job or work related!

While I do think some holidays are over commercialized, including this one to some extent, I do enjoy Mother’s Day. We mothers are special! Who does all the things we do?? And I love (almost!) every minute of it!

To all the mothers, especially those with challenges of children who have special needs and disabilities – THANK YOU for all you do! Enjoy your special day and celebrate the love you have for your children, and treasure the love they have for you.

This message is to all mothers, in all walks of life, in every part of the world. It’s especially meant for mothers of children with spinal cord injuries, special needs or any disabilities/challenges. My own son is now 26 years old, and his life is a gift to me every single day. I probably took this for granted before his spinal cord injury. In fact, I’m sure I did.  Now, not one day goes by that I am not grateful for having both him and my daughter in my life. For this, I am thankful.

To all you mothers, cherish your children. Rejoice in their joys and successes; be there with them through difficulties and challenges. Know that you DO make a difference in their lives. Stay strong for yourself and for them. If you don’t take care of yourself, both physically and emotionally, you are not the best person you can be for either of you.

I hope you are able to spend at least a little time this Mother’s Day reflecting on your role as a mother, the relationship you have with your child or children, and the impact you have or can have on their lives. If you are a mother to a child with a spinal cord injury, I know the types of challenges you face every day. As we stay strong, so do our children. We are there for them every day, ready to help them when needed, but we must be ready to let them go when they are ready.

Enjoy Mother’s Day and celebrate your self! We mothers keep the world going round……………    Cynthia
