I've always thought that Mother's Day was about honoring your mother.
And, for years, I believed that one honored their mother by making her breakfast in bed, making her homemade gifts, spending the day with her, etc.
But, now I know the truth.
The truth, for example, that breakfast in bed = stress listening the mayhem of preparation and a messier kitchen to clean-up later.
I love my children more than anything and, honestly, spending time with them is a true gift. And, well, homemade gifts are precious.
But, I'm thinking (am I alone here?) that every once in a while the real way to honor a mother...the real way to show her how much you appreciate her - is to...well, give her the day off. :)
To all those mothers out there, I hope Mother's Day is wonderful -- however you choose to spend it.
