Today is Mother’s Day—and my self-appointed day of rest.
I was greeted by the cheerful smile of my most beautiful daughter, who giggled as she said, “Today is your day, Mom!”
Indeed, today is my day.
And though, I’m not one for fabulously-flashy formalities…I do believe I will indulge in a day tucked away all to myself.
I’ve dinner already planned, and a shortcake to share thanks to my garden.
The house has been tidied up just a bit (keeping in mind that there’s nothing wrong with a little dust now and again.)
My coffee is waiting for me, along with my most favorite book.
But for now, I wanted to wish all of the moms out there—a day filled with a most blissful contentment.
Because, my dears, you have earned it.
“You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them. Try to be a rainbow in someone’s cloud. Do not complain. Make every effort to change things you do not like. If you cannot make a change, change the way you have been thinking. You might find a new solution.
Never whine. Whining lets a brute know that a victim is in the neighborhood.
Be certain that you do not die without having done something wonderful for humanity.”
Happy Mother’s Day—now, let’s be certain to do something wonderful for humanity.
