Mother calling! Mother calling just a little LOUDER!

It came as a surprise to me when I left the U.S. and moved to Europe that there were several Mother's Days, on different dates. I wasn't a mother and my own mother knew only about the American version, so I didn't give this too much thought for a few years.

And then I finally figured out why we celebrate Mother's Day in May. I wrote about it on my new journalism blog at GenevaLunch. If you love your mother, read this. If you are a mother, read this. If you don't fit into one of those categories, you could broaden your horizons by reading this.

(Only a mother would make that last remark.)
