Mother's Day! Let's make it our day!

Mothers Day! Lets make it our day!

Those who love us and know us well are not mind readers.  Help them out.  If you dream of breakfast in bed, let them know.  Want to go for a family walk?  Pick your favorite site and inform everyone of the time and meeting place.  Bottom line is we can take responsibility for our own happiness. 

We don’t have to wait for “others” to make us happy.

While you are at it, allow yourself time to reflect on what you are grateful for – regardless of your present situation.  There is always something good.  Think about each of your children. It’s easy to get caught up in their challenges and challenging times, but for this day focus on their gifts and strengths.  

Give yourself a pat on the back for the
steps you’ve taken to nurture your children’s gifts.

Celebrate your moments of greatness as a parent.  Allow yourself to be imperfect.  We all are.  

Progress not perfection is always our goal.

And while you are at it reach out to those women who have gone before you.  Your own mom(s) and grandmothers, mothers in-law, teachers, coaches and other significant women in your life who have supported and encouraged you, helping you to become the woman and mother you are today.  

Happy Mother’s Day.  It’s Your Day!
