Your Mother’s Day present is your new present is not a clever play on words. Well, it is, but what this statement is meant to do is remind you of your New Life. So you can put the “Glums” away today.
Yes, there were all of those Mother’s Days that you and your children spent with your Ex. But as years went by and tensions grew, this holiday probably became a formality that you all had to endure.
Tension. Stilted conversations. Everyone trying to get it over with as quickly as possible.
Definitely not the way to feel honored on a national holiday, was it?
Today during your family get together, all of that tension will be gone. You can just be celebrated for the great Mom you are.
And when Mother’s Day is done, don’t forget to keep applying your maternal instincts to yourself. There are a myriad of ways to Mom yourself every other day of the year. Those 364 “Other’s Days” will cease to exist. You may be rusty at this, because all Moms sacrifice themselves for their families, and you will never stop doing that. The difference is, from now on, you will include yourself in the list of people that you Mom. Over time, your shiny new “present” situation will become your present to yourself.
So, all of you moms, what I’m saying here is: “Happy Mother’s Day, Week and Year!”
There SHOULD be a card for that, but there isn’t.
Now, this could take some doing. So if you ever start to fall back on old ways of thinking that you don’t deserve to be kind to yourself, just remember what they say about Moms:
Mother Knows Best
