Most countries around the world
celebrate Mother's Day today, the second Sunday of May. For many of us, the holiday brings mixed feelings not only regarding our own mothers, but how we see ourselves and other supportive figures in our lives.This week's questions are:
- How does Mother's Day affect you / make you feel about your own mother (or the maternal figure[s] in your life)?
- What thoughts do you have about who you are or want to be as a "mother" to others (human or fur-covered!)?
- How do you handle Mother's Day in terms of self-care, coping mechanisms, family, celebrating, etc.?
