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!
