Celebrating Mother’s Day

So as we are celebrating mother’s day, what does a mother want today on this mother’s day? Breakfast in bed? A spa day or just some flowers? Most of us never ask for anything, as we know we have more than most. With children our lives are blessed with laughter and fun, with a lot of other stuff thrown in! Every day brings new challenges, some happy some not so happy. But I wouldn’t change a single thing.

The Amazing World of Gumball

I was watching The Amazing World of Gumball with the kids this week. The mother in the cartoon had a list in her hand. The cartoon kids asked her what the list was about and her reply was priceless! She said “It’s the list of dreams that I traded in for a list of chores.” Oh my, I couldn’t stop laughing! If you haven’t see it it, check it out on Cartoon Network. It’s the funniest thing on the box.

But on this day, that is a list of chores I wouldn’t trade back for my list of dreams. For my list of chores is someone else’s dream. I am thinking of the people for whom today may be one of the hardest days of all. So to all of you out there who are feeling it today, I hope you do have a lovely day, whatever you decide to do on this Mother’s Day.

Here are a few moment’s from my day. Beautiful flowers, my favourite chocolates, with a mug of hot coffee! My girls know what I love.

And yes that is face paint from yesterday.. I had one too many chores.. 🙂

So what did you receive for Mother’s day? Or what is your favourite gift to give? Let me know in the comments section!
