Yeah, I love this crazy life. I always spend Mother’s Day a bit on edge (Motherless daughters tend to do that…) and odds are GREAT that I will cry at some point during the day.
However, this day was a bit unusual…I spent quite a bit of time thinking about what I liked about my life. Here it is:
1. I love that my kids can scream at me at the top of their lungs, tell me they hate me and that I am the worst mother in the world, and still have a red-eye from Starbucks, new gardening gloves (Um, I needed them YESTERDAY people) a Sunday paper and a huge bouquet of sunflowers waiting for me when I woke on Mother’s Day.
2. I love that I can be reduced to a blubbering idiot over a tad bit of a problem at work, and yet still find I have forgiveness in my heart. I can always be a better teacher, person and friend.
3. I love that Tightwad can infuriate me at times, and yet know exactly what I need when I feeling a bit down. He’s a keeper. (For God’s sake don’t tell him that.)
4. I love that Golden Boy has been sleeping in a real bed for 6 weeks now. Every. Single. Night. (Yeah, he’s ten, but that’s a long story …)
Yeah, I’m a happy little mother right about now.
