All those years ago when I made my life list, Number One without any hesitation was “Be someone’s mother.” I made that wish–“be a mom”–on every birthday candle, every stray eyelash and every shooting star for 10 years. It took me a long time, but I’m so glad to get there.
So today was a good day.
I hope yours was, too. I know people who gritted their teeth through Mother’s Day this year because this was the first one without their mother, or the first one without their baby. Peace to you. As my friend Tara at “I Might Need A Nap” said, “Monday is coming.”
There are others out there who treasured every moment because it was their first Mother’s Day as a mother. Peace to you as well. Monday is coming for all of us and it will be filled with treasures and surprises.
Whenever you ask my friend, Annelle, “How are you today?” she answers, “It’s the best day of my life.” No matter what. No matter the weather, the bank balance, the number of smiles or tears. It’s the best day of her life. And she’s right. It really is the only one we have so what could be better?
Happy Monday. I’m glad you’re here.
