Happy Mother’s Day
This year is flying by! I can’t believe it’s Mother’s Day Weekend! Time is just speeding up and I feel like I am always running behind. Oh well, that’s life right? I have been thinking a lot about Mother’s Day and I wanted to share a few thoughts with you. First of all, I know that Mother’s Day is a hard day for some of you. It’s a day that we celebrate our own mothers, but it can also be a reminder of something that we want to be but aren’t yet or maybe won’t be able to be.
Don’t let this day get you down. It’s easy to look at something and have an idea of how it’s “supposed to be” and when it’s not we feel like we have been cheated. This is one of Satan’s greatest tools he uses to keep us miserable. I know it’s hard, I’ve spent many Mother’s Days sad over a particular situation that I have no control over. Instead of enjoying my day with my family I have ruined it by being miserable.
Several years ago I decided enough was enough. I plan my day ahead of time. If my husband and children come up with something to add to the day great, but if not I am not frustrated that no one made a plan. I also think about what I want to celebrate and what might make it hard to do that. Now I know that everyone of you has your own trials and triumphs. I’m certainly not telling you to change what you are doing. My hope is to share my experiences and maybe help someone who is struggling.
I also wanted to share this cute printable to make your lives easier. I have created two options, one in pink and the other in purple. Feel free to print them and share them with your mom!
