Now I know you're thinking "Well gee, Melissa. That's very nice and not the least bit mundane." And you'd be right. But you see, what I'm celebrating - the magic, if you will - is what so many of us have and take for granted, so that they seem mundane - Our Moms. Ask anyone who doesn't have one, or who has lost one, and they will tell you how special these women are. But we get so bogged down in life and take for granted all the things, little and big, that they do for us that we sometimes don't even notice. And then we get something like this plate and bowl and we are reminded how special they are. Sure, there are days where they drive us nuts , but guess what - that's their job. They are supposed to be annoying, nosy and embarrassing. So today, just for a moment, stop and think about what your life would be like without them. Think about what they give us and where would we be without them. And know that all of it comes from a very special place - their heart. Think about your own children and what you go through for them, what you put up with, what you give up, how you feel about them, how you'd take on the world for them and know that you have someone that feels that way about you...It's special and just a little overwhelming, isn't it?
Have you called your mom today? Or better yet, hugged her and told her you love her? Give it a shot, it will make her day.
