A Day of Appreciation For Women

IMG_0278

It’s Mother’s Day down here in Australia and I’m pretty sure it’s the same in the USA. I’ve always had a healthy skepticism about Mother’s Day, which is a day that can be fraught with disappointment and wrought with unrealistic expectations.  I learned early on it was important to ‘stage-manage’ the day so that I got the day I wanted.  If the weather was good, that meant a picnic or a bike ride 🙂

I have a day planned and after yesterday’s huge day of two book talks 50 kilometres apart and dashing 100 kilometres to see Boy Wonder in a production of RENT, I’m thinking a nap might be on the agenda 🙂

Before I had my own children, I was a foster carer, an involved auntie and working with children in the community. I don’t believe this day belongs only to mothers but to women who care for others. Let’s face it, that’s ALL women. We’re the emotional touchstones of our community.

These days I’m writing longer novels about women and the issues in their lives using the skills I learned writing romance. There is always at least one mother in my books. In fact,   BIRTHRIGHT starts on Mother’s Day. I had a bit of fun there and one son’s infamous statement one mother’s day when he was 16 is now in print 😉

Currently,  Daughter of Mine, Birthright and Home Fires are only available in Australia and New Zealand but I am working towards publishing them myself  in the USA and the UK. If you would like to be put on the mailing list for when that happens, please drop me a line at fiona@fionalowe.com

How are you spending your day?

Wishing you a very happy day! Take control and make it your own.

  1. Hi Fiona

    Happy Mother’s Day to all who celebrate and I agree not just mothers there are a lot of people who care for others and deserve a big hug today.
    I have just arrived home from one of my daughter’s places and we had a small BBQ two of my four children where there and two of my 8 grandchildren but I face-timed with the other two families, and am now at home alone to do some reading and I am finally reading Home Fires and loving it, enjoy your day Fiona a day alone can be so good sometimes

    have Fun

    Helen

  2. Fiona,
    Your guys have grown into such nice looking young men! I too, try not to expect much on Mother’s Day. I did get some extra nice cards from two of my kids. They are old enough now and have their own children so they realize what it is to be a parent so they appreciate me more. There is justice in the world.
