Mother’s Day can be a lot of pressure for your spouse and family. If they don’t do everything you hoped for – it can also be a big letdown. I don’t think about Mother’s Day as the one day my kids and husband appreciate and pamper me for all my hard work during the year. I hope to be appreciated most days – as I try to appreciate my husband for what he does. When I make dinner on a random weekday – I expect and encourage them to thank me for my work (because it is work!). If I don’t feel unappreciated all year then I won’t have to put too much pressure on one day a year.
Today was a great Mother’s Day! My kids ran into my arms with hugs and kisses and told me the loved me very much. I got thoughtful handmade cards and an awesome photo mug. We then did our regular Sunday stuff – soccer, lunch – t-ball but everyone did it with extra hugs and smiles for me. I felt loved and happy. Definitely a great Mother’s Day!
