Today is Mother’s Day.
I don’t have kids, but I do have Happy.
He steals food from my plate.
He serves as my look out.
He has a social life and gets invited to his puppy pals birthday party and eats cake!
He is my baby.
I know Happy is a dog. And yes, as a Service Animal, he takes care of me. But one of the unexpected joys of my life is I get to take care of him.
Happy has the same significance (and fills the void of my barren womb) that I imagine a human child for mothers.
So on behalf of all fur moms, foster moms, grand moms raising their children’s children, same-sex moms of all genders, CIS born moms — HAPPY MOTHER’S Day!!!
