It's said it takes a village to raise a child. That means it takes an entire tribe of caring parents-most often women-to do the work.
Most people grew up with a motherly figure, whether a mom, stepmom, grandmother, aunt, or sister, to support them with that special "Mom" touch. Don't forget the birth mothers who made a sacrificial gift to bring children into the world for others to love.
Today, be sure to say thank all of the women who've been loving and motherly to you. It can be a phone call, a handwritten note, a lovely card, a gift, a Zoom or Facebook Live call, or just a heartfelt hug. Let those ladies know you love and appreciate them.
