Three Cheers for Working Moms
This video is my gift to working moms, inspired by a day when this working mom (yes, that’s me) needed a break and figured other moms did too. Tired of the backhanded comments about how I was paying other people to raise my children while I went to work, or how another mother was so dedicated because she stayed at home, I thought to myself that it’s time working moms got their props, too. What a fabulous group of women we are; let’s not just admit it, but shout it from our desktops!
I knew this video would become something really special when the video designer, Jerry Retford, reached out to me and volunteered his time and talents to help me bring it to life. He said he wanted to do it as a tribute to his own working mom. Isn’t that fabulous?! Then he inspired Leeran Raphaely, the composer, and all the beautiful voices you hear on the video to jump on board as well. When you’re doing something right, good, and positive, it really is infectious.
To all those who worked on this video, I thank you. And to all the hard working mamas out there – this is your pat on the back! This is your cheering section! This is to tell you that I, and all the other moms like you and I, are standing in your corner. I applaud you, honor you, and am constantly amazed at what you achieve, every single day.
