On Mother’s Day, we talk about moms. A lot. For obvious reasons. But there’s a tendency to only talk about and express gratitude for this one singular role they play—as if the role of “mom” were completely isolated from all the other roles women play or their existence as whole people.
The truth is that all moms, regardless of whether or not they work outside the home, are many things in addition to being moms.
Moms are actual people. And no person can be summed up in a single story.
