This morning I am burnt out. Wanting nothing more than to lie in bed with a great book to renew my spirit I survey my to do list. Pharmacy, grocery store, doctor’s office and a list of phone calls to be made. Rest for another day. Yesterday actually was the day of rest for Moms (if they are so lucky). After a day of the rich spoils I am reminded of just why we celebrate Mothers in the first place. They do everything! To their own physical (and mental?) detriment.
I see now why when the days are rough I call Mom still to this day. The need for a Mothering love never erodes, only evolves. So to all the Mothers who paved the way of unconditional love in the years before me, Thank you! It is because of those women, like my Mother, that worked so feverishly to care for their brood that I received such recognition in the day to day and on Mother’s Day. Thank you Mom for showing me the way.
