I’m grateful to have so many great role models in my life: my mom, my stepmom, my mother-in-law, my aunts, my husband’s aunts, my sister-in-laws, my sons’ godmother—I could go on and on. Happy Mother’s Day!
Janine Kovac

Every week we post a photo submitted by one of our readers along with all the happy and thankful comments gathered throughout the week.

To contribute, email your gratitude (a sentence or two would be great) or your favorite photo to Janine at janinek@berkeley.edu

You can also contribute gratitudes by commenting at the bottom of this post. Please include: your name if you’d like us to use it and any other info you’d like us to list, e.g., if the “gratitude” is from one of your children, it would be great to know his or her age.

Thanks, Aunt Lulu! Thanks, Aunt Lulu!
