Happy Mother's Day!

I love my kids every day, all the time. They love me every day, all the time. I always feel loved and appreciated - I never doubt how my family feels about me.

But I think it's nice to have these "assigned" days of honouring. A day when people are reminded to take the extra time to give moms a break and a give them a thank you. And I am exactly at the stage of mothering that needs a break and an extra thank you. The stage where mothering is amazing a million times a day, but also the stage where it is almost all encompassing with no room for anything else.

And a mother does need to have something else sometimes. And a mother needs to hear how appreciated they are.

All my momma friends out there, I hope you felt appreciated today and had the kind of day that made you happy.

I did :)
