Aren’t mothers wonderful? It’s not really a question, but sometimes it’s good to think about mothers and how much they have given us, how unconditionally they have supported us and what an incredible effort it is to raise a child.
On the other side of that coin, sometimes it’s also good to think about how mothers are not only mothers, but can also be professionals, artists, entrepreneurs, dancers, athletes, inventors, doctors, mentors, friends, parking inspectors, and on and on and on.
And then of course it’s also good to think about women who are not mothers themselves but who care for children anyway, or who are inspired by their mothers and the other women in their lives who they, in turn, also inspire and nurture and support. Women like Anna Jarvis, who created the modern Mother’s Day to honour her own mother, a social activist who founded ‘Mother’s Day Work Clubs’ to address public health issues.
This WRAP we’re taking a closer look at how much labour there is in love, remembering the importance of friends and spending 60 wonderful seconds with the vibrant Luisa Salvo.
And Happy Mother’s Day for next week.
Until next time,
The WRAP Team
