This Sunday is a day to celebrate mothers. All mothers, not just your own. We should be thankful for the mothers who try their hardest to provide a good life for their children, whether it is our idea of a good life or not. We should be thankful for the mothers who were unable to have children of their own and chose to adopt someone else's children and raise them as their own. We should also be thankful to the mothers who have the courage to recognize that they will not be able to provide for their children and make that very difficult decision to let someone else raise their children to be the best that they could possibly be.
To be a mother. This is something that I truly hold dear to my heart. My very life's breath is for my children. I live for them. Everything that I have done up to this point in my life has been for them. I do not ask for anything in return because it is my gift to them for being as wonderful as they are. The thing is, to be a mother encompassess so much that it really is inconceiveable how much we go through every day. This does not make us heroes or martyrs. It is something that we chose. Mother's Day is not to honour the mothers for being mothers, but it is to recognize them for the choices that they made. The sacrifices. The triumphs. Yes, we made our choices and we thankfully got to receive the greatest gift: unconditional love.
So my happy thought of this day is..........MOM.
Happy Does It!
