Do you feel tired? Over worked? Under appreciated? Alone? Don’t worry, your day is here – Mother’s day! It is one day a year to show your Mommy how much you appreciate them and everything they do. Usually its filed with flowers, cards, chocolates, a good breakfast and perhaps even sleeping in. If all of this or more sounds like the day you’ve had – consider yourself lucky!!
There are some unfortunate Mommies who aren’t as lucky as you and I. Nope. They have had a terrible day and even week leading up to this day. I swear….it’s true. Personally it makes me upset that not every Mommy feels special (even just for today). Could you imagine your significant other telling you that
“You’re not MY mother, so why should I do something for you?”
“I made plans with MY mother; you’ll have to figure out something else”
IMAGINE!! I would lose my freaking mind. Lose it.
For all those men out there that really do take the time to appreciate their child(ren)’s Mommy – Thank you. It is a day to show how much you appreciate her for all the things (big or little) she does for the family. For all the times the house “magically” was cleaned when you got home. Or the numerous amounts of times dinner was ready and hot at just the perfect time. How about all the times the child(ren) decided to draw up the walls in crayon while you napped? Yup. You’re welcome.
Mother’s day is for all the Daddies who may not have the time to stop and say thank you (of course they think it all the time!) or for those who do but want to do more for the Mother of their children. It’s hard work being a Mommy – the constant needing from a child with no breaks in sight until bed time. We like to be appreciated every day but today more than anything. Don’t forget to reach out to your wife and give her a hug and kiss. Tell her you love her. Say the actual words “Thank You” (it means so much to hear them!!) and then let her relax for the day.
