Happy mothers day

To the women who routinely make the remarkable appear mundane and the mundane remarkable.

I think mothers day is the greeting card holiday they got right. While most moms deserve a mothers week or month, they wouldn’t take it. They’re too busy doing things for other people.

I am lucky. My wife is an incredible mom to our kids. Full stop, no caveats or buts, simply amazing.

My own mom continues to be remarkable. She’s added the role of grandma, because that’s what moms do, they take on more.

Between school events, performances, and the sidelines of sports, moms gather around kids focused on the same goals. They share the same supportive language kids need to hear but work so hard to ignore. Yet they are all unique. They’ve charted their own course and they proudly do things their own way. Individual pursuit of a common goal is a powerful example to set.

A mom’s unique role is to help kids set a direction and send them off while at the same time providing a solid foundation where they can return over and over regardless of how far off course they’ve gone.

Happy mothers day to all the wonderful moms out there.


I have a goal to write a post on Medium every day for the month of May, this is a big change for me. My focus is on how we can adapt and drive the changes we want to see in our lives. I hope you’ll come along for the ride.
