Elliot Williams' life has been full of pitfalls and tragedy, now through the will of his mother that breathes within him, he's ready for his comeback to the NBA.
Modern motherhood takes a toll on women's well-being, strains parents' relationships, weakens families, and certainly doesn't do children any good. My heart goes out to mothers, but I don't "revere" motherhood.
Life after the death of your child is unbearable at times. I could end this post with a positive It Will Get Better message, but I'm not feeling that way right now and I know there are lots of other moms missing their babies today. I'm thinking of you.
Mother's Day didn't exactly go as planned. Well, not as Hallmark would have planned it anyway. The first departure from the idyllic script was that I was a little hungover. It was not a raging headache, in fact, better than I might have expected when I went to bed, but still enough to put me off my game.
What is it that we are trying to convey on each Mother's Day, if nothing but the celebration of the life? And what better way to celebrate the lives of these women, who have given us the width of the sky, more meaningfully than the gift of good health?
We salute your courage to bridge the stereotypes with non-conventional ideas and as you continue to do so, we hope that you are rejuvenated by those who hold you near and dear on this special day!
Amidst the destruction and aftermath of the recent earthquake in Nepal, daily miracles and moments of compassion illustrate what is possible when humanity bands together -- babies pulled alive from rubble, mothers sheltering hours-old newborns and citizens rushing in from around the world to provide relief to massive suffering.
How you treat your aging mother is an example to your own children on how to treat you as you enter you final lap, a passage that can be physically painful and lonely. Be consistently grumpy around your old mom and your kids may do the same when you are their old mom- and stick you in a nursing home far away from your grandchildren.
Mother's Day is here and it's my first one without Mom. My mother, Evelyn Levine, died on April 19, and it was a huge personal loss as well as the end of an era. She was the last of the Greatest Generation in her family. More importantly, she was an amazing mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, as well as my biggest fan.
The Mother's Day Harry was 12, they handed me a plain business envelope with M❤M written on the front. I unfolded a single sheet of white paper to find a typed poem titled "The Joy of Having a Mother." I was blown away.
Every mother knows what it is to feel out of energy and patience. But a mother never runs out of love; it's self-replenishing. This week, treat yourself to that same patience and support, the kind you have shown to your own friends and family, to help you ease the negative effects of stress.
How lucky are we who live and intimately associate with our kids, while so many mothers have lost their children -- or never had them at all -- for whatever crazy reasons in an irrational, chaotic, and unjust world?
Mother's Day is about thanking moms for everything they do for their children. But I'm also thankful for everything Democrats do for moms. As a society, we must be committed to empowering moms to make those tough decisions and to create opportunities for them to succeed.
It takes so little to show your appreciation on a more frequent basis. Whether it's a quick cup of coffee, a movie, going shopping, a day out on the town or simply telling your Mother how much you love, appreciate and treasure her. Consider doing this often.
My mom would rather take us to the beach than clean the house, so that's what we did! She taught us to skate, ski, dance, play, eat ice cream, sled, swim. She was a do-er. We got out there and tried everything.
