Hi everyone.  Yes, it’s a couple of days past Mother’s Day.  Most of the time, I am late enough mailing my gifts that the mothers in my life don’t get them until about now.  I was early this year with the post office, but I’m still late on this post. However, since mothers are moving and shaking every single day, there really is no bad day to honor them.  So here’s a double-shot for all you moms.  Happy Mother’s Day – again!!

It’s only one day of the year, but it is nice to get a little good pub for all the stuff we do.  I sincerely hope that all you who have mothered someone had something enjoyable happening this past Sunday.

Now for a real treat.  Last year I participated in the Postpartum Progress Mother’s Day Rally.  I wrote a letter to new moms describing my experience with postpartum depression and my hopes for each of them as they started their journey of motherhood.  This year, Katherine Stone had a whole new crop of writers write in for Mother’s Day – 24 letters in all, two posted every hour around the clock. You can read these touching letters at Postpartum Progress.

As before, these writers all have a unique perspective and outlook on their experiences.  Go over to Katherine’s blog and have a look at these wonderful letters reaching out to new moms.  Yet another way to honor moms of all kinds, especially those going through all sorts of unspeakable emotions and difficult times. Once again, Happy Mother’s Day to all kinds of moms and mothering types.
