Happy mother’s day. Relax and enjoy your day. Take time to pamper yourself and allow yourself to be pampered by those who love you.
My “most favored role” in life is being a Mother and now a grandmother. I have two wonderful sons who tell me almost every day that they Love me and they show me love in so many ways. I don’t need gifts for Mother’s Day. They are my gifts.
I have Grandsons, too, and they are indeed special. Each one is so different and brings a special gift even when they aren’t aware that they are giving it—an sweet smile, an unsolicited “I love you, Grandma,” an, “I’ve missed you.”
I love to hear from each of them and they don’t disappoint me. It’s tough being a teen these days and my two teen age grandsons give me hope for the future. They are so special. My first is graduating from high school in June, my youngest will be in fifth grade.
I have done a lot of things in my lifetime: a career in nursing, helped a politician husband, did public speaking, served as President of a few organizations, headed up a department of nursing in a local hospital and served in the state Department of Health Services. I have headed up projects, written a couple of books and tried my hand at things way out of my league. None of these presented the challenges nor brought the joy and satisfaction that I gained from being the mother of Christopher and Kevin.
None stirred my heart to such love as their sons do now when they call me “Grandma.”
Happy Mother’s Day to each of you.
Thank you to my sons and grandsons for simply being you.
