xo Here’s To YOU, GIRLilla Mama — Because EVERY DAY Is Mother’s Day xo

By Lisa Barr

So there I was at Whole Foods paying for groceries. The rad-looking twentysomething behind the register, with the violet streak in her long dark hair, sparkly nose ring, and mega-brocade shoulder tatoo, smiled and said, “I love what you’re buying. You’ve got one lucky household. How was your day?”

Wow, I thought. She sees me, she REALLY sees me.

How was my day? Crazy, busy, fun, challenging, irritating, uplifting, hectic; every minute counting before the clock stopped at 3:15 p.m. — aka: high school pick-up. I looked over at the Mom behind me in line. She, too, had yummy food. She too, clearly had a lucky house, and I wondered how was her day?

We are ALL in this together — no matter what we do — Full-Time-Working Mommy, Stay-at-Home Mommy, Part-time Working Mommy, Single Mommy, Divorced Mommy, Widowed Mommy. We are all in that same boat of juggling Motherhood with Womanhood, in each of our respective Hoods. So I thought between all your crazy and my crazy — I’d recognize all that you do because from one GIRLilla Warfare Mama to another … I see you, I REALLY see you. 

So here’s to you for:

Loving … Parenting … Mothering … Listening … Leading … Following … Giving … Taking … Teaching … Nagging … Fixing …Working … Stay-at-homing … Driving … Cooking … Decorating … Reservation-ing … Buying … Shlepping … Doctoring … Carpooling … Cleaning …  Kissing … Peace-making … Hugging … Making It Better-ing … Referee-ing … Defending … Organizing … Volunteering … Laughing … Protecting … Advising … Trusting … Friend-ing … Daughter-ing … Sister-ing … Wife-ing … Pet-caring … Sex Goddess-ing … Styling … Exercising … Anti-Aging … Zen-ing … Believing.

In other words, just BEING the best you can be.

Love ya, Girlfriend. Happy Day — YOU deserve it .. xoxo LB
