Mother’s Day is coming, Mamas!
Our time to shine!
I love all of the attention except for the fact that I never know how to respond when my family asks what kind of mother’s day gift I’d like.
I know it sounds cliché, but I really do have everything I could want in life.
My family makes me so happy and I feel so content sitting in my sweet little house, hanging out with them, that it’s difficult to think of a gift that could compare.
I mean, my very first Mother’s Day as a mom, I was still in the hospital, having just given birth to my daughter a couple of days earlier.
What Mother’s Day gift could top my first born child???

Let yourself be celebrated
You know, I used to feel a little overwhelmed trying to think about Mother’s day gifts when I was asked.
I’d even feel a little resentful. Like, this is stressful! Leave me out of it!
But now I recognize how much of a blessing it is to have family that cares about me and wants to celebrate me.
I realized that my stress and resentment actually came from being uncomfortable with being celebrated.
My family loves me and they want to show me. Why would I ever be mad about that?
Let your kids love you. Let your partner support you.
You deserve to be celebrated, Mama.
Those Mother’s Day gifts are just a token of how much your family loves you.
Soak it in!
