Happy Mother's Day, friends

In: All Ages

I hope you've got special plans today.

Maybe your family has planned something...or not. Maybe they're scrambling because they forgot. Maybe none of you are the planning types.

It doesn't matter. Take a deep breath and embrace this day as yours.

Listen to something uplifting or funny. If you're lucky enough to be in one of the 32 cities staging showings of Listen To Your Mother, grab a ticket and go. (I'll be cheering in the audience at the Portland show this afternoon.)

Eat something delicious.

Look at something beautiful.

Wear something that makes you feel like you. Pretty dress, pajamas, hiking boots, whatever.

Know, deep inside, you are important, appreciated, and loved.
