Mother's Day 2013

Sleeping in.  Homemade breakfast of eggs benedict and chocolate milk.  Flowers.  Chocolates.  Everything a mom would want for Mother's Day, right?

Mothers all over want one thing on "their" day - a break from their children.  But to me, this is counter-intuitive.  I wanted nothing more than to be surrounded with my husband and offspring.  But yes, I did want to sleep in!  I wanted to appreciate what we had created, what we are raising, and the reason for the day.  At the same time, I didn't feel that this day was too out of the ordinary.  My children and my husband help out all the time, show me they love me, and we love being around each other.

But I'm still grateful for a day to sleep in.
