I wanted to take this opportunity to commend all the mothers out there who juggle so many varied tasks and still manage to get it all accomplished. In my mind, one day is not enough to celebrate all that the word “Mother” encompasses.
I was fortunate enough to have my oldest son drive over five hours to be with me for this special day. My youngest son was out of town with my mother until just this afternoon. However, he called at 8 a.m. this morning to wish me a happy Mother’s Day. Each year, my kids mature and become more responsible and I think maybe I didn’t mess them up too much. Either that or the fact that Mr. Wonderful is their father is showing through more and more.
So, if you’re a mother, take an inventory today. Instead of picking up your textbook or writing another paper, take some time to appreciate your kids. No matter their age right now, they will be grown up before you’re ready.
