Mother’s Day will come around again in another 365 days.  Why do we have to wait that long to feel respected, loved, appreciated and noticed?  Don’t get me wrong, I think it’s a wonderful holiday and I am more than happy to participate and receive all the perks.  Do holidays such as Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Teacher Appreciation Day, etc. teach us that it’s okay to have a lack of appreciation every other day?  I wish every day was appreciation day in my house and believe me, I try, but it somehow usually fails.  I guess moms could settle for “Thank You Day”.  You kicked butt as a mom today, you deserve a thank you.  You packed the greatest lunchbox today, you deserve a thank you.  You made sure your child had his favorite socks washed and ready to wear today, you deserve a thank you.  You could have made reservations but instead decided to slave over a home cooked gourmet meal, you deserve a thank you.  Sounds nice, doesn’t it?  A simple thank you goes a long way.

I certainly didn’t choose to become a mother because I wanted or expected a “thank you” every day.  To me, there are many forms a “thank you” can take.  A hug from my seven year old is a thank you.  A random “I wuv you” from my two year old is a thank you.  When my five year old asks me if I am wearing a new dress and tells me I look pretty, that is a thank you.  When my husband plays with my kids so I can have a moment of silence, that is a thank you.

We don’t need a day to feel appreciated.  We need, want and deserve to feel valued EVERY day.  Whether it’s coming from our kids, our spouse or even a stranger, knowing we are cherished, respected and rewarded with a few “thank yous” here and there, (whatever the definition means to you), can make our day and journey through motherhood a whole lot easier and more gratifying!

Hope you all had a wonderful Mother’s Day and continue to feel the love, the warmth and appreciation from your family…EVERY day!

Ask any pregnant woman and she will tell you that now she’s expecting what once smelled delicious  - like roasting coffee beans for example, has suddenly become the one smell that induces an overwhelming feeling of nausea. For some women the pregnant nose goes into smell overdrive…

Black Friday – it’s Not Just About Fashion

Fashion, eh? It comes and goes, then comes back around again, at once fleeting and eternal. A style is in one month and then is never heard of again – until it is heard of again, of course.

The quest for fashionable clothes never ends; it’s just that what is in vogue is always changing.…
