A Mother is a Gift

Happy Mother's Day!!

Source
I just love Mother's Day, mainly because it's a day where we can honor the women in our lives who have made a difference. You don't have to be a mother to be celebrated on this special day. Every woman has the opportunity to have an impact on someone else's life, so today, while honoring mothers, I truly believe it's also a day to honor womanhood.

As women, we are special. We are unique. We are daughters, wives, sisters, mothers, teachers, and friends. We come in many shapes, sizes, colors, and religious preferences. We have been blessed with the ability to bear children, nurture souls, and show kindness to those we come in contact with. So, today, let's honor all those women in our lives who have taught us something, who have brought a smile to our face, who have loved us or cared for us.

You don't have to be a mother to celebrate Mother's Day.

But now that I am a mother, it is truly one of my favorite days. It's a chance for me to be pampered by my gaggle of boys. It's an opportunity for me to relax and eat chocolates, and let my husband and sons cook dinner and clean up.

Yesterday, I got to take the "day off." I did a little shopping, and met up with a friend for lunch and pedicures. It was seriously the BEST day! And a day I totally needed!

Don't you love our selfie? :)


If you're celebrating Mother's Day today, here are some great quotes to uplift and inspire you. Do any of them ring true?

  1. You have a lovely Mother's day. I visited my mom in long term care and it was lovely. We could bring her down to the courtyard and look at the pretty pink flowering trees. I love that last quote. My mom would do all for me and my brother and now we must do our all for a lady who leaves me in awe. They deserve respect. Enjoy your day

  2. I especially liked the first quote. I sat through many a rainy football game just waiting for the band to take the field.

  5. Happy Mother's Day (late!). Aren't you just beautiful? I love that picture! I'm a stepmother, but I don't feel that I've earned the right to be pampered on Mother's Day. So it's all about my mom!
