Mom's Day Revelation...


I hope all the Mothers out there had the best Mother’s Day they could have..whether that means a day at the spa, breakfast in bed, a new pair of shoes or just a great day with the family.  I heard women say that this was just a hallmark holiday..another posted on facebook that she didn’t “need” mother’s day to know how lucky she was or as a reason to tell her mother she loved her.  I wonder if those women actually told their husbands and children not to celebrate them today.  Not to do anything extra special for them because they didn’t “need” it.  Or were they just pontificating?

Well I realized today that I do need it.  I love it.  The same way I will love making my husband feel extra special on Father’s day, or his birthday or whenever.  Our life is crazy busy and while I know what I do or who I am is appreciated, and while I appreciate every day with my son and every day with my own Mother, how could I not love a day that my husband takes extra time to show me and make me feel special.  I do need him to work with my 2 yr old to teach him to say, “Happy Mother’s Day Mama!” and take him to get a card and have him sign it with a crayon in scribbles.  I do like getting a present..no matter what it is, a picture of my son and I, or my husband and son, or a new necklace tag with my son’s name on it because the one I got last year tarnished..  heck, I’d even love a mug with my little one’s picture on it that I may never use but will have forever.  No gift is ever too small for me because what I appreciate is my husband took the time leading up to the day to try and make it a perfect day for me, from having my iced coffee waiting to making sure I have the flowers that I love so much.  I do need it.  Maybe it’s because it’s what I do and how I was raised; not sure...

But, my name is Sarah and I’m a thoughtfulnessaholic.
