I spent yesterday afternoon snuggled on the couch with my coloring book. I did not worry about the number of steps I took with my pedometer or the the list of house chores to get done before this work week began. I simply relaxed and it was wonderful!
Today I would like to give thanks and deep gratitude to all the moms out there. There are so many forms of moms from the traditional sense to the ones that nurture us in other ways. For all the love and compassion you show, for all the time you spend giving or worrying, and for the million things you do that your "children" do not even recognize... Thank You!
I'm so grateful for all the moms in my life that have been great role models to help prepare me for my own role as mom. I'm very grateful to have a wonderful, loving, creative, kind, and beautiful mom that is always there for me and will soon be a grandma! I'm so grateful for a caring husband that got me gifts for Pre-Mother's Day and yet still took the time to make me breakfast in bed and pamper me on Mother's Day too. I'm grateful for my sweet dogs that have given me a small taste of what it is to be a mom whether that be playing and being silly or sitting up all night through a storm or upset stomach. I'm grateful for my amazing and supportive family. I'm grateful for all my friends in their various stages of life. I'm grateful for the simple things, like my coloring book that help me unwind and renew my spirit. And I'm grateful to start this week refreshed and full of blessings and gratitude.
How do you like to renew your spirit? What blessings and gratitude can you share today? What new beauty will this day hold for you?
May today bless you with a full heart and a content mind. May you find blessings all around you. Have a beautiful day!
