A Mother's Day Gift

Mother's Day is quickly approaching. All I hear lately is moms all over the world who wonder what their husbands will get them for Mother's Day. Seriously? Why is Mother's Day about getting a gift?

For me, Mother's Day is not about people celebrating me. Rather it is a day I use to reflect upon myself. My triumphs, my tribulations and most importantly how much I enjoy being a mom. I don't take the day off of cooking, household chores, etc. Instead I spend the day doing exactly what I enjoy...being a mommy of three little girls.

I am not a perfect mom by any means, but God has given me so many blessings and I am thankful. God allows me the opportunity to share my knowledge with my girls, be a teacher to my girls and a best friend to my girls. Mother's Day is not about what gift you will receive, but it is about the gifts from God that you have already received.
