Mother’s Day is one holiday that I really like, and it’s not just because I get treated like a princess. It’s because I love mothers – all mothers. I love my mother, my mother-in-law, my aunts and every mom I see with her child. I love how mom’s are the heart of the home and therefore they shape the world. I’m honoured to be part of this club.
We have the pleasure of working with a lot of moms. They invite us into their homes and we get to know them in a very special way. We meet new moms, mom’s of teens and mothers whose children may have left the nest but are held close in their heart. All these moms want to make the best home they can for their families. I admire that.
From my own Mother I learned the difference between a house and a home. A house is a structure or a building, but a home is full of love and laughter and acceptance. We didn’t live in a large house, and we never had the latest trends, but our home was something special.
Sometimes I struggle with what it is that brings happiness. We are so bombarded by advertisements telling us we need to buy this and go here and do that, that my head gets crazy. So today as Mother’s Day is winding down, I’m reflecting on my blessings. I am remembering that time spent is more important than anything money can buy, that life goes by quickly, and that joy can be found everywhere. It’s really the simple sweet things that make life beautiful. Thanks Mom – you’re the best. xxx
