THE WAY 1000 Shades of women celebrate MOTHER’S DAY 

I’m aware that Mother’s Day tends to be a holiday concocted by the greeting card and floral companies, a cultural holiday dominated by consumer pressures.
For those whose mothers have died or are distant, and for those who have never been mothers, the day touches other sensitivities. But we think any “problem” with Mother’s Day is just because typically it is defined too narrowly. There are many mothers in all our lives and many kinds of mothering experiences. There are so many although non-blood relate that are there for us and our children in indescribable ways.
It doesn’t take the woman who brought you in this world to celebrate and appreciate all of those who’ve done nothing more than uplift, empower, encourage and mold. Let’s set aside our differences, whether it’s race, culture, beliefs and lifestyle and come together to appreciate WOMEN everywhere. # 1000SHADESOFWOMEN.
