Happy cook, housekeeper, nanny, teacher, organizer, accountant, shopper, nurturer, lover, empathizer, scheduler, chauffeur, disciplinarian, keeper of loose ends and tiny details, and very often child-bearing day. Also known as Mother's Day.
While I have never given birth, I have a couple of babies (I'm married to one, the other has fur and meows) and I care for my own Mother who is elderly, widowed and relies on me.
Today I addressed her plumbing and phone problems, donuts and a greeting card were delivered and, after our visit was over, I bought cat litter from the store and cleaned the box, carpets were vacuumed, the checkbook balanced and dinner preparation is complete. Yesterday, I spent the day installing cable boxes on our televisions (the provider is converting to an all digital format).
My weekend is almost over and, as usual, I had little time to indulge myself with my favorite pastime. Oh well, a woman's work is never done but, at least one day a year, we receive some recognition for all that we do.
Since a post without a photo seems strange, here's a peak at what I'd hoped to work on (stay tuned).
I'm sending a heartfelt Happy Mother's Day wish to each and everyone one of you and hope you take some time for yourself today because you've earned it!
