I try not to give sermons on this blog (even though I do it all the time in real life) but I want to write a Mothers day plea. I am hoping this does not apply to any of you ladies but I know to many who do not get the pampering they need on Mothers day. It is usually because they do not ask for it, they do not plan for it. You know if you have a dream, it does not happen without some work and since most hubbies can not read our minds (well I know mine can't) we have to ask for what we want. We have to know what we want, we have to make it a priority.
I will probably not be having my mothers day this weekend. It will be pushed off util next weekend (I take a whole weekend by the way, not just Sunday!) We do not have the money. Not that I need a lot but we do not have any money until pay-day. I could just suck it up and say "oh it is no problem" but that really would not be true. I would rather wait and do it right. If I had to wait a month I would.
I do it not just to be pampered (although I really like that part) but I do for my girls. When they grow up and (hopefully) are mothers, I do NOT want them to suck it up. I want them to feel honored, I want them to feel loved and I want them to get a break. How I live says much more to my girls, then what I say.
So I have a dream, I have a plan. Before Mothers day I will make sure the fridge has something yummy in it for me, I will have a stack of mags. for me to read in bed, I will have let hubby know what I would like. Which will probably be a picnic somewhere and go look at a few antique stores.
Why I am telling you all this? If you always put yourself on the back burner on Mothers day, please not do it this year. For your sake, for you hubbies sake, for your children's sake, have a dream, make a plan and ask for what you need. And if you need to wait a couple of weeks until you can do it, please do xox
By the way this is a picture of me and hubby. David is carrying any goodies I find on the beach. He know I will shop anywhere I can ;-)
