This year I take a deeper bow than usual to all our planet’s mothers, for it has been a year when mothers have had to give even more. Millions of moms had to leave their jobs and stay home with their children during the 2020 pandemic. Millions of women in the health field, in hospitals risked their lives EVERY DAY to help others survive. Most lived in fear that they may infect their families. Stripping down and putting their clothes immediately in the washer and then showering before they could hug their kids, or kiss their husbands when they returned home from work. And, the thousands of single moms and grandmas that could not physically be with their children.
