That's what my kids said to me yesterday after Colin nicely reminded them to do so.
I had a great day full of yummy food (and, in America, isn't that what it's all about?) and a surprise visit from my dad that really made my day.
Saturday we went to Inspirations. It is sure to become an annual event, because OMGRAVY...THE FOOD.
This year, it seems I am more aware than ever that Mother's Day is painful for many. It's painful for those that want children and can't have any as well as those who have lost children or lost their mother. I thought a lot last week about my single mama friends who do the mom thing day in and day out without a break or help EVER. I think we should celebrate ALL women and what they do.
So, to my mom, mother in law, grandmas, my precious aunts and my mom's dear friends who all helped raise me...I thank you.
And to my kids' grandmas, great grandmas, precious aunts, and to all my dear friends who seem to pick up where I leave off in helping raise my kids...thank you.
