Happy Mother's Day!

Mother’s Day is a day the we take out to celebrate our mothers. For all that they do, it can be a very well deserved thank you for loving me and taking care of me to the best of your ability. For mothers, the idea of mothers day can be very heart warming.

I have three children in elementary school. It is so exciting when I see them trying to plan and hide their gift for me. The gleam in their eyes and the side talk with their father makes me happy. I love to see their kind hearts. It doesn’t matter what project they are doing, just the excitement is enough to melt my heart.

As a mother, I have learned to not push to hard on them when mothers day is around the corner. I try to let them surprise me. It is so fun for me to act surprised. I will say most of the time I am surprised. This year I kind of have an idea of what the present is. I look forward to seeing their happy faces this morning giving me my present.

I work hard everyday to make sure I can provide my children with everything I didn’t have and their core values. It is an important part of being a parent & a mother. As mothers we have that special bond with our children. Of course, I do know and understand that some parents and children are adopted. I believe in those cases a special bond is also formed. It is an amazing gift from God to be able to bear a child and be given the blessing to have a child when you physically can’t.

I commend all the mothers out there for doing their part. Showing your children you are not always perfect, but you are perfect for them. I am writing a book for moms. On my site you will see I had it for pre-order. I hope to bring it to you soon. My book “Supermom, Celebrating All of Who We Are” helps give a different perspective on motherhood. For all mothers whether you are a new mom or a mom of 4 plus kids. I hope it will help us as a community bridge a gap I have seen in the community for quite sometime. So many mothers look down on the other just because our lives are slightly different. For instance, one may be a working mom and another may be a stay-at-home mom.

I have been in some scenarios where the stay-at-home mom will give me either looks or just plainly say things that can be hurtful just because I work. Not many families have the option to stay-at-home. In today’s society, you need a two parent household that works. The cost of living alone here in California is truly expensive.

I feel like we need to take away that stigma that one is better than the other. We were all blessed to have children and we should all support one another because of it. A hope of mine would be to go global with the removing of the stigma. We all need to celebrate who we are as a whole because it is what makes us a better mother.

If you are interested in helping me remove the stigma. I propose you send me an email directly to sd@sd-henderson.com and we can start a coalition in our local communities all over the world.

What do you think about that?
