I am the proud Mom of two awesome sons; the younger has two adorable sons with his wonderful wife, who is a fantastic Mom. (Happy Mother’s Day, Luann.)
Being a Mom taught me more about myself and the world than anything else I have experienced. Not that you have to be a Mom to learn things, but for me it turned out to be the perfect package for lots of great gifts.
Here are a few:
H happiness – one size can fit all, and you always look good wearing it.
A awareness – breathe deep and often
P patience – almost every situation can benefit from it
P people – truly matter more
Y young – they really are, cut them more slack
M moments – create and savor them
O openness – to possibilities and moments
T time – passes both quickly and slowly, cherish it all
H hugs – you can’t give too many
E enthusiasm – can make all the difference
R emember – they really do grow-up and move on
S simple – as in, keep it simple
D Dads – half of the best thing you ever made together: your kids
A acceptance – another word for listening
Y you – pretty much the key to everything; treat gently
Mother’s Day is a great way to celebrate who you are with folks, who love you – motherhood not required.
