Mother of the Year award

Anyone who has experienced motherhood, and anyone who is planning on it in the near future...listen up! There are plenty of things you do that sound outrageous to outsiders. There are plenty of ways you'll "mess up" each day. There are plenty of things that you wish you did better. And there are plenty of times you wish you had your "old" life back. But at the end of the day, what matters most is that your kids know how very much you love them, and that you haven't forgotten to give them all the kisses and hugs possible in a day. It's funny - now that school has started, you get the fun mother's day gifts. One of my favorites is the questionnaire that the teacher fills out after asking your child (I guess it's sort of scarey considering they could say anything good or bad). Joseph's this year, on the question that asks how they know their mommy loves them, answered "because she get me kisses all the time...and she tells me..." So maybe, amongst all the things I do wrong during the day, I'm still managing to do something right.
This Sunday is Mother's Day, so for all the mothers, grandmothers, friends, and future mothers out there - Happy Mother's Day! You make the world a better place! And here's my card to honor such wonderful women....
