Weighing in on Mother’s Day

I’m not a fan of cut flowers.  They die too soon.

I don’t crave boxed chocolates.  Too much sugar makes me miserable.

Greeting cards get kept for a while.  Displayed, then thrown away.

I don’t like presents. Period.

But every Mother’s Day I am reminded of how blessed I am to have received two precious packages, some twenty-odd years ago.  One 8′ 9oz, the other 8′ 11oz.

  These, I kept for as long as I could.

I thank God for the gift of Mother’s Day.

I am blessed by my girls.  They have made me a better person.

I am grateful to their father for being the kind of dad

-who always put his daughter’s best interest ahead of his own.

“It’s not only children who grow. Parents do too. As much as we watch to see what our children do with their lives, they are watching us to see what we do with ours. I can’t tell my children to reach for the sun. All I can do is reach for it, myself.” – Joyce Maynard

Mother’s Day is not just one single day to honor moms,  it’s an ongoing celebration of the entire family package.

Happy Mother’s Day to all moms and the many supportive dads who make today a priceless gift.
