Happy Mother’s Day! This is a special day for me too. Even though I left my birth mother at a very early age, my human family rescued me on Mother’s Day weekend five years ago. Every year on this day I am thankful for all of the love, support and care they have provided over the years. And isn’t this why we celebrate Mothers today?
I note with interest that last week was “Be Kind to Animals Week”. I am moved that kindness to animals is promoted, but I am also curious why animals get a week of attention, while Mom is honored for only one day. Then it hit me: Do humans really need a special week to be kind to animals? My experience with your species suggests that the answer is “No”. You are kind because you are kind. And do we need a special day to honor mothers? I am sure you can see where I am going with this!
Please be kind to Mom, today and everyday!
Your best friend,
