I love being a Mom and I remember my first Mother’s Day… 9 years ago… it was only days after my son, was born. I can laugh about it now but only a few days after his birth, Mom’s emotions were… well… pretty out of whack and every time someone did something nice for me… I started crying!
This morning I woke up to my son jumping up and down beside the bed, presents in hand, saying, ‘Mommy… do you want to open your presents now?’ And look at me, I not only smiled, but had to wipe a tear from my eye. Certainly not a sad tear, but one of joy and happiness! I was then blessed with the joy of opening my gifts – of which included a Skylanders Giants video game character! Just for ME! Usually I get a Pokemon game of some sort so this was something new for me! And, I love it!
So, to all you Moms out there, I want to say ‘Happy Mother’s Day’! Whether you are spending the day with your family, or using the day for yourself and hitting the spa, or just not getting out of bed… I wish you all an amazing day!
