“What is most essential is invisible to the eye.” ~ The Little Prince

May is Mental Health Awareness Month and did you know nearly 20% of Americans struggle with depression, anxiety, or other mental health issues? If depression or anxiety has touched your home or your family, as it has mine, then you know how lonely and sometimes terrifying it can feel. It’s a silent struggle that is largely invisible to others who are on the outside looking in. If you break a leg, you wear a cast or use crutches and people wish you well and show empathy. But the symptoms of depression or anxiety are generally invisible to the eye, yet they are still so essential to our health and well-being. What I’ve learned is that we are not alone. That we are enough. And that the most important things in this world really are the simple things — the things you can’t hold in your hand or see with the eye. Things like kindness, compassion, empathy, and love. If you or a loved one is struggling with mental health, I encourage you to reach out to your doctor and seek help from caring professionals. And know that you are enough, and you are not alone.

This month is also Mother’s Day and I want to acknowledge and thank two people. First, my sweet mother for all she has done for me. I simply wouldn’t be here today if not for her profound love and devotion to her family. Thank you, Mom. And the second person is my amazing mother-in-law. Now, I know it’s not common for women to speak so glowingly about their mother-in-law but let me go on record as saying mine is one of the absolute best. She is a strong woman who raised a really good man. And he, in turn, is an excellent husband, a loving father, and a role model not only for our kids but for so many in our community. His character was shaped by his mother’s love and sometimes it takes my breath away. So, on this Mother’s Day weekend, I am delighted to honor and celebrate two incredibly special moms, each of whom is a blessing and a privilege to know.

Wishing you a Happy Mother’s Day weekend.
