Happy Mother’s Day to all the wonderful mothers in the world. For all the times you kept going when everyone else became ill, good job! For all the troubled times you were strong and everyone around you crumbled, I’m proud of you! For every dream you set aside to help another achieve theirs…you are awesome! For every person you tucked into bed to chase nightmares away and lost your own sleep, go you! And for keeping strong during this crazy pandemic, way to go! (Side note: If you had some emotional moments where you found it hard to keep it together, this is okay too! You deserve to have your moments, even if it’s huddled in a corner sobbing like a mad woman. Take those moments and then recharge. You can do it!)
But this is YOUR day! It’s okay to sit, sleep, read a book, let the dishes sit, not pick up any clothes, let someone else fix supper, or have another do the laundry. Rest, because you deserve it! And it’s okay if you want to seize life and do something spontaneous or out of character. Take a hike, explore a cave, climb a wall, bungee jump, repel, or ride a bike along the beach. Take the kids or don’t take the kids. Seize your day because you are MOM and you are APPRECIATED!
Love to you all!
