Happy Mother's Day

"Making the decision to have a child is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body." ~Elizabeth Stone

To all of you who are walking around with your hearts on the outside, Happy Mother's Day!

What does Mother's Day mean to you? Christy over at LilyToad wrote in her recent newsletter, "For those of you who think Mother's Day is a hallmark holiday, I would like to share some information that turned me around on the subject. Turns out, Mother's Day was introduced in the United States as a call to unite for peace and disarmament. You can read more about the history..."

If you are looking for something different to do for Mother's Day, Hip Mama, the parenting zine, is hosting a Mother's Day Party and Variety Show. It is a fundraiser, relaunch, and welcome to the new editor, Kerlin Richter. Urban Mamas also has a list of a whole weekend worth of family-friendly activities in their weekly Weekend Warriors post. There are a bunch of Mother's Day brunches happening around town, Fran Zimmerman describes several of them at Associated Content. For single moms, has some ideas of ways to celebrate your labor of love. And at PSU, the Women's Resource Center and Student Parents has some treats planned for you.

If you are looking for alternative ways to honor the mother in your life, Activistas connected to Urban Mamas has a few suggestions.

Whatever your plans, we hope you have a wonderful day!
