I see where people are coming from who say Mother's Day is a silly, commercialized holiday. But I also totally soak every bit of it up. Because there are plenty of thankless days in Motherhood. So why not honor the hard work of Mother's once in a while? And, yes, it's a little ironic that I want to be honored in my motherhood by having a day off motherhood. Yeah, yeah, yeah. I still want to relax.
Richard let me take some "time off" on Saturday to go get a haircut, do some shopping, and have lunch alone. While I was gone he and the kids bought me a lilac tree to plant in the yard! On Sunday Richard was super helpful and sweet to me. We went to dinner at his parent's house with Kevin and Kelly and Ruth. It was a lovely day.
I felt very honored and loved and appreciated. And that is the point.
