Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day

This morning I know I was dreaming, I was sleeping beyond the time of 5:30am when I heard one of my little's starts to cry. Their way to say it is time to wake up. Just like routine of a rooster in the morning when the sun is coming up. Sometimes lucky enough to fall back to sleep if I lay down with them sometimes not, this morning we managed another 20 minutes. When all said and done, three out of four little's were awake and ready to start the day. 
Today was just like any other day to them, they do not realize today is Mother's Day. The day for their Mommy to have breakfast in bed, relax, do nothing, have Sunday brunch, receive flowers, candy and cards. Okay, wishful thinking on my part and as I just typed those words I have a lump in my throat because as great as that all sounds I know it just will not happen. I maybe lucky to get the breakfast in bed, cooked by my husband then shared with my little's in a carpet picnic format. Flowers, a card and depending on how the day goes possibly dinner and I stress on possibly. Whatever manages to happen or not to happen, I know I am blessed and loved no matter what.
In reading many posts and articles in the past couple of days about Mother's Day; ten things here, five things there, Mothers are this but really it is like the NyQuil commercial Mommy's really never get a day off. 
I am very thankful for the today, for my family but truly it is really like any other day. Us mommy's are praised every day. I know my praise comes with hug, a quick smile, a laugh, squeeze of the hand, light brush of my finger, asking for more food, sitting to read a book, an Eskimo kiss, science projects built with all my makeup, lotion bottles or Lego pieces, non-stop asking of the same thing over and over, being tackled when playing in the ball pit; yes it does not always come in a form of a thank you, an I love you or a job well done. Thus, I do have to remind myself because long days of meltdowns, doctors' appointments, therapies, no shower, maybe not even changing clothes, several diaper changes, umpteen phone calls, trying to figure out the date or day without looking at the calendar, then switching gears to be a wife (sorry David). It does not matter whether your children are special needs or not, children are your children and they have their special way of needing you as their Mother. Just as I need my mother, this Mother's Day my Mother is with me in spirit. Watching over me and all babies. I know she is never far away from us for a moment. Love you Mom! 
We (us Mothers) are not perfect but there are many things that we sacrifice for our children and that my fellow Mothers is an honored itself. Happy Mother's Day today and every day! "God could not be everywhere, and therefore he made mothers." - Rudyard Kipling GOD BLESS

Until Next Time...Make it A Great Day!
