Mother’s day is very dear to me. As a little girl, it was the perfect opportunity to show my mom and Grandma how much I loved them. It has become even more special now that I am a Mother. Yesterday, after a delicious breakfast of bacon and baguette, the family relaxed around the house. My boys gave me their beautiful cards and all was good. My oldest son is somewhat of a deep thinker and definitely a sensitive old soul. (Get ready girls!) He was cuddling with me and asked my why was Mother’s Day so important to me. Wasn’t my birthday more important? I thought about it for a second and smiled within my heart. Yes, birthdays for kids are THE most important, I explained. However, being a Mommy or a Daddy or a Grandparent truly trumps any other holiday or occasion. Mother’s Day is a day to celebrate my most favorite role. It is a day to be acknowledged for being what I hope and strive to be. I explained to him how proud I was to be his mother and that nothing else gives me as much joy and satisfaction. It is a day for everyone to sit back and appreciate and adore Mom. I asked him if he thought I was a good Mom. His earnest answer broke my heart into a million happy pieces. ”You are the best Mom ever. I love you with all of my heart and you love me for me. I am really lucky to have you as my Mom.” My youngest son’s poem caused happy tears as well.
“My mom is as sweet as a teddy bear. She is as beautiful as a swan. My mom is smart like a seeing eye dog. But, most of all, my mom is as loving as a panda.”
Ahhhh, I am so blessed! I hope everyone had a wonderful day as well.
