I hope all of you women had a wonderful Mother’s Day. I know this time of year can be great for some, and hard for others. If you are one who has lost your Mother, or any other wonderful woman in your life, I hope you were able to feel peace reflecting on the impact they had on you. If you are one who is unable to have children, I hope you were able to see the way you still nurture and change lives for the better. If you are a woman who is a Mother, I hope you were able to stop being hard on yourself for a day and see the good you are doing or have done in your child or children’s lives.
This Mother’s Day weekend was spent in part (as I mentioned Friday) with my mom and step-dad in the Race for the Cure. It was a really neat experience to be there to support my step-dad and talk about the loss of his first wife to cancer. There were over 12,000 people there. Seeing the examples of so many strong women who were battling cancer or were survivors was awesome. Seeing those who were honoring and supporting their loved ones was amazing.
There was just a feeling of power and love there. My walking buddies were great company.
We had some good laughs from the creativity of those around us.
and of course had a good workout.
