Dig this. The other day I checked the Webster dictionary for the definition of Mother. I was blown away by how simple yet loaded and powerful was the definition. The conclusion: mothers are miracles workers and because selfless giving is in their DNA, therefore mothers should be celebrated everyday as our unsung heroes. Period.
When I think about the selfless dedication of my own mommy, it’s obvious that not all superheroes come with a cape and not all angles have wings either. This explains why behind every good kid is a great mom. I should know. I turned out to be a good doggie, right?
Have you noticed how Mother’s Day has become so commercialized that it’s easy to forget what this special day is all about anymore?
Let’s paws for a moment to truly appreciate this special day in honor of all moms including dog moms.
The dog-vocate in me says let’s reclaim Mother’s Day for dog advocacy. Let’s become a voice for the voiceless. Let’s extend this natural material instinct to protecting man’s best friend from the horrors of homelessness and abuse. Let Mother’s Day inspire love of dogs and adoption vs. more consumerism. Now isn’t that a goal worth sniffing about?
Like all grateful rescue dogs Mother’s Day has a special significance to me too. In a nutshell: I’m all that I am today because of the enduring love of my Mommy. I know I’m biased.
Translation: Happy Mother’s Day!!!
