HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!!
Well, Sunday, May 13th, is Mother's Day... most of us will run out to the store and pay $4.99 for a glittery card... I do it every year! However, when I thought to myself: Self, what would I want from my kids if I could have anything?... I replied: I would want a hand-written card or note telling me what I've done right... I want to know what I've done to make them smile and feel worthy!
Usually moms only get to hear what we have done wrong... and most of the time it's coming from our own thoughts! If you're considering buying a card for your mom... consider instead spending a few minutes sitting down and remembering all the things your moms did right... no matter what the current circumstances are... more than likely, she's always tried her best. Let her know by putting your thoughts on paper so she'll always have a reminder from you, not Hallmark, why you love her.

Just like you, I wear many hats. I'm a mom, a teacher, a friend, a daughter, a sister, and a writer. I choose to laugh (and talk... and write) about my problems because crying takes too much time.
