Mother's Day is Every Day

Who would have thought to create a single day to celebrate motherhood?  When I became a mother, I celebrated being a mother every day I looked at my beautiful daughter’s face shining back at me.  I called her my little sunshine girl.  I celebrated every day that I had a chance by playing with her, going on adventures (many call them vacations) and just being in the moment with her.  There is only one regret….I wish I had played house with her Barbie dolls more often.

To those of us who no longer have our mom’s around, remember the twinkling smile she would give you and those hugs that only you feel when it’s from your mom.  Enjoy the day celebrating those special women who nurtured and loved us through it all.
