I realize that Mother's Day is a day for all of those we dote on all year along to just say thanks (and of course for us to thank our own fabulous mothers) but I always like to take a few moments and just count my blessings. To revel in the fact that I actually have the opportunity to be a mother. I don't share a lot on this blog about my personal life but my children were hard won. Many disappointments and many rounds of IVF. With my youngest, we were only given a 1-2% chance of success. I savor every hug, every tear and even every tantrum. But sometimes, like a lot of us, I get wrapped up in life and work and it's always nice to have a day, a special day, to step back and just be grateful for the tremendous (rambunctious) gifts I've been given.
And just incase you are up to your eyeballs in the craziness of life, like I am, and haven't had a chance to pick up gift tags or cards, here is a free download just to help make your life a little less hectic. Enjoy!! And happy, HAPPY Mother's Day!!
