Mother’s Day this year surprised me. I braced myself for a painful day, but was taken aback by how happy I was hearing others share stories of their own mothers or their children. The joy of finally being able to spend time together after an incredibly tough COVID year was palpable through tiny screens. I cannot thank anyone enough who took a moment to share tender and vulnerable moments with us. The happiness was contagious.
