Happy Mother’s Day!

“Motherhood is the longest-running, continuous production of your life. Every day. Seven days a week. It doesn’t matter if it’s SRO or an empty house: You play to it. It doesn’t matter if the critics love or hate your performance. The show never closes. Every day you climb into your costume and do the best you can, writing the script as you go along.”
Erma Bombeck
May 14, 1989

Happy Mother’s Day to Mothers Everywhere!
