Waveny LifeCare Network COVID-19 Daily Update for Residents, Patients, and Families
As we celebrate Mother’s Day, most would agree a Mother’s impact on the lives of her children is truly incalculable. Legions of brilliant, courageous, nurturing Moms do more than make humanity possible. Given what’s become an almost dizzying pace of life, in all likelihood many of their daily sacrifices can go unnoticed. Yet they continue to make incredible, indelible impressions on generations to come.
Stepping back and looking our increasingly globally integrated, inter-generational world, it also seems fitting to acknowledge not just our biological Mothers, but indeed all the Mother figures in our lives who played their own special part in transforming us into who we are today.
Often, though we may not have realized it at the time (typically not until years later) - at those most pivotal points in our lives when we really needed them, they were there for us. It may have been that special teacher, stepmother, foster mother, kind and watchful neighbor, or office mom. Some would rightly argue biology could be one of the least important parts of being a Mother.
Whomever you’re celebrating – we’d like to give special recognition to Moms that left their children and families to come into Waveny and work today - either in person, at an appropriate “social distance”, or in memory, our team also honors them and you, for remembering how they inspired you and shaped your life. We truly wish our Patients, Residents, families and staff a blessed Happy Mother’s Day.
