My children are still to young to understand Mother's Day. They don't know it's a day to thank mama for all her hard work, to be on their best behavior and to bring her flowers and plant sloppy kisses on her cheek. That's okay.
I don't need flowers or breakfast in bed. I don't need cards or jewelry. I don't need these things to feel their thank you's, to feel their love.
Last year I wrote about feeling grateful. It stands true today. I am grateful for this journey, each new day and all the ups and downs that come with it.
I hope you are spending time with those you love today. Happy Mama's Day!
