On a recent trip to Pittsburgh, I was reminded of the gift that are our mothers. In the lobby of the The Andy Warhol Museum, hung an art installation by Yoko Ono, titled “My Mommy is Beautiful.” The temporary exhibit was essentially a long board where visitors could leave their pictures, thoughts, notes, poems, etc., celebrating the mothers in their lives. Simple, and yet surprisingly powerful. Who knew scribbles of “I love you, Mom” could be so moving?
The exhibit has since closed, but you can still share your mama-memories at www.mymommyisbeautiful.com.
