☆•´¯`•.¸☆•♥.• Happy Mother’s Day !!! •.¸☆•♥.•´¯`•.¸☆
Today’s intent is filled with sweet words, candy and flowers. A day where Moms receive countless handmade gifts and cards and we hope deep down, that the entire day goes smooth and easy. Just today. Just 24 hours. It is after all Mother’s Day.
This time last year, my Mother’s Day was not so sweet. Those that connect with me in the Twitter -world, know that da Boi has been on his own unique journey through the maze of mental illness. I’m happy to say that today he is succeeding. But it’s a moment by moment assessment. And the truth is Hallmark doesn’t have a Mental Wellness section. Maybe one day they will, as this is the reality of so many of our homes. Sometimes the family dynamic is not perfect. So we embrace the precious moments that we get. The fact that my son is on the path to being healthy and happy, is the best Mother’s Day gift ever!
If you are a Single Mom, Step-Mom, Grand-mom, God-Mom, the neighborhood Mom- today is about celebrating and appreciating YOU. If you have given birth – we celebrate you. If you have adopted a child – we celebrate you. To have the heart that puts others first and expecting nothing in return makes YOU so wonderful and BEAUTIFUL.
If your Mother has transcended. (( HUGS and LOVE to YOU))
My wish for you is a day full of loving memories that bring a smile to your soul.
I know, some days are not easy. Some days are not pretty. Let’s face it; some days are simply a hot mess.
And still here you are.
And still you are present, doing your best, and not giving up.
From one Mother to another – I APPRECIATE YOU… Let us be each other’s muse and motivation that we can reflect on as we succeed.
And when our days get messy and sloppy?
Well, we clean it up and move on to the next moment our child(ren) has in store for us!
