I would like to reach out and wish all the Moms a Happy Mother’s Day. I myself am blessed to be a Mom and a Grandmother, aka “Mimi”. I am also lucky enough to be a stepmother to 3 children as well.
While being a mother is rewarding it also has it challenges. When I was a young mother I remember being terrified that I wasn’t up to the task. Yep, scared to death to be honest. My daughter somehow made it and is a fantastic mother to my grandson. Of course, I can not take all the credit. It truly does, take a village.
Nobody gives you a handbook of instructions. There are no set rules or reasons on how to be a mother. We just do it! Some how, we find our way.
I lost my Mother quite a few years ago. There are still times when I have the urge to call her and consult with her or ask her “what would you do”. So often, I will say something and have to pause, because they are her exact words. It’s those moments when I realize, I am much like my mother.
It was my good fortune to marry into a family that I also love. My mother-in-law has been like a mother. In fact she told me long ago, “you can call me Mom”. I do and I respect and value her opinions. She raised two children of her own, after all. My husband is a wonderful man and his sister is like the sister I never had. I am pretty lucky!
So to all you Moms out there, everywhere, enjoy your day. To all of you celebrating your Mothers enjoy every moment. Time is fleeting and goes by in the blink of an eye. The time to celebrate and love is now. Lets treat these wonderful women with all the joy and appreciation they deserve. I truly hope your day is filled with all the things you love and make you happy.
This one is for you Jeanette ……. wherever you are! I love you!
Til next time,
