So, Mother's Day is this Sunday.  Did you know that?  My Mom passed away many years ago and I haven't paid much attention to the occasion since.

I remember when I was a kid in elementary school and making gifts in art class for Mom and Dad as Mother's Day and Father's Day approached.  I remember it was awkward for one of my classmates who lost his dad.

Well, some schools in BC have made the move.  School kids out there brought home notes on the weekend that read, "In an effort to celebrate diversity, inclusivity and also to nurture our students who are part of non-traditional families, we have decided to encourage those celebrations to take place at home.  Due to this, the children will not be making gifts at school to give on Mother's Day and Father's Day.  We feel each family knows the best way to celebrate with their own family."

I don't know about you but I think they've got it right.
