Mother's Day

I'm not sure I 'get' this special day.

Sure, my kids may (or may not) make me a card or buy some flowers today, and I'm not suggesting for a moment that I will be ungrateful for their efforts. But what is more important is the relationship they have with me every day of the year.

Every day of the year Lauren gives me a hug and tells me I'm beautiful and how much she loves me.

Every day of the year Matthew jumps up from whatever he is doing around the house as soon as I come in the basement door and runs to me to give me a big hug and says "Hi mom, how's your day going - do you need me to help you carry anything in from your car?"

Every day of the year Andrew thanks me for something or other: "Thanks mom, you're the best".

How fortunate I am - every day of the year.

So, everyone else is welcome to enjoy this hallmark holiday. Quite fortunately, its just another day for this luckiest mom on the planet.
