The most important day of the year is upon us so it is time to celebrate all Moms, past, present and future. No other role holds the same importance, so be sure to take the time to enjoy reveling in yourself. Sometimes the importance of being a mother is overlooked because so many other things are considered more important. Not on Mother’s Day. Mother’s rule so sit back, enjoy letting others do something wonderful for you. You only get one day a year that really belongs to you so don’t get bogged down with things being perfect or hosting a family function. You can do that another day, Sunday is your day so let the men and children spoil you. Even the littlest things can have the biggest impact so let the kids give you breakfast in bed and don’t go to the kitchen what ever you do. The mess is not your job today. Cheers!!!!!!!!

Becoming a mother is a huge job with so many rewards that I felt it was important to remind all mothers young and old how much they are appreciated. We all know how we feel about our mothers but sometimes we underestimate our own importance. It doesn’t matter how old you are when you become a mom you need to constantly remind yourself that this job is like no other. You are a mother and because our lives are consumed with the lives of others we deserve a day of celebration. Enjoy this time and don’t sacrifice one moment of a day set aside for you. Revel in it. Enjoy yourself. Remember there are 364 days of the year that you will spend thinking of others first, so today let yourself be number one. Here are just a few things I think will help you enjoy the day you deserve.
- Don’t make your children figure out what you want but make a plan with clear instructions on how you want your day to go. I always thought breakfast in bed, helped my children to understand the meaning of Mother’s Day. Knowing that my husband was in the kitchen with the kids making something for me to eat would put a smile on my face. Most of the time I had to remind myself not to get up but to wait for them to come to me with their breakfast presentation because if I did not wait I would ruin it for them. Ruining it for them would not get me the day I wanted.
- If a nice quiet day is what you desire, make it happen, or if a busy day is what you want then a busy day is what you should have. Remind everyone that this is your day, so making it an enjoyable day will help make all your mother’s day celebrations, a day to look forward to instead of a day you would rather forget.
A nice long hot, uninterrupted bath, may be something that you have wanted for so long, so I say, if that is what you want start making a plan. Go buy yourself some candles, bubbles and anything else you have been dreaming about to make that bath memorable. Remember this is a teachable moment. Your children will learn that you are important and celebrating you today will help you maintain your status as the greatest mom in the world. Happy Mother’s Day!
