The day is here. The day that some moms hate and others try to relish in. I personally don’t make too much of it. It’s nice that the hubby and kiddos maybe feel more of a sense of obligation to pick up after themselves, say nice things to me, and possibly plan out a present. But it’s more a day to remember the “moms” in my life and how I want to grow up to be more like them.
This Mother’s Day I am so grateful to have a healthy mom. I’ve got a lot left to learn from her and she is such a spiritual being – I aspire to be more like her. My mom-in-law is one of the most talented, in-touch women I know. I continue to learn about giving and patience from her. There are many other women who represent goodness and love in my life and I am eternally grateful for their examples and righteous desires.
I am also grateful that I have been given 3 beautiful children who call me mom (actually Mommy)! I want to live in a way that makes them want to be good, healthy, choice people……
My mom-in-law was thoughtful enough to send me a card for this holiday. I think it pretty sums up momhood!
On the front is a picture of Winnie the Pooh, Kanga & Roo. The caption:
“How do you learn to be a mom?” asked Pooh.
“You just follow your heart,” answered Kanga.
