Did none of us mention Mothers' Day?

A shout-out to all the mothers, imas, mamas, moms and mommies who read this blog, and a belated happy mothers' day.

I ran into a frum older neighbor of mine last night on my way home with my (thank you for making me an ima) son asleep in the stroller. I wished her happy mothers' day, and she looked at me. "Every day is mothers' day. I don't celebrate it." Of course. Kibud em v'av doesn't only happen on a May Sunday or a June Sunday.

I did like very much Tom Friedman's column about his mother, and hope you'll all read it.

Regardless of how many cards and gifts you received, the real tribute is the unique and beautiful ways in which your children love you.
