Two years ago that was my due date. Naive me thought that meant I would be giving birth that day. I didn't. He was four days overdue according to measurements. When he came out covered in a hormonal rash, with wrinkly and flaking skin it was decided he was over a week overdue.

So why don't I remember it much? Almost every day feels like Mother's Day. I'm so fortunate to have the mister. He cooks, helps clean, let's me sleep in occasionally, surprises me with little gifts (chocolate), tells me he loves me everyday and makes me feel beautiful daily. As I said, I'm very fortunate.
So what do I want for Mother's Day? Apart from world peace I'd like a gift donated. A blanket and hug to a homeless mum, a birth kit for less fortunate mothers, clean drinking water for the mothers whose families don't have it, a flower to those mothers in nursing homes who feel forgotten, or how about a beautiful scarf or hat for mothers battling cancer.
I've got what I want for Mother's Day. A healthy, loving family and my first beautiful Mother's Day card from munchkin. It's time to give to those who don't.

So very very true.
I overheard two of my girls playing nicely together today for a change and right there I said to myself "Happy Mother's day". It's all about moments like those.
Awwww, that card is adorable.ReplyDelete
