I have been seeing this tag go round and round....so at the end of it all, I will not tag anyone coz I think everyone else has already written about it.
Reading all the previous postings, I think most of us want a day of rest. Either rest away from the kids or rest with the kids behaving perfectly (for once)! And most of us have our husbands in the picture..which I think is really great. Marriage has to be our priority before kids I reckon.
But I think the one thing I want on Mothers' Day which will happen for me is to spend the time with my mother and my grandmother. 3 generations of mothers together!
Also on that day I want to be able to have peace in my heart and mind. Not that boyboy will be an angel or for me to be away from him for a day for some rest. But that I will come to terms with motherhood.
To accept that boyboy will have his moods...and I will still have peace.
To accept that he will fall....and I will still have peace.
To accept that I may do things wrongly.....and I will still have peace.
To accept that he may not always act the way I want him to....and still have peace.
Basically to accept peacefully that I am not perfect but I am learning. To accept that I have done my best, the rest is up to God.
Perhaps this Mothers' Day, I will find peace....if not be aware that I need to find that peace.
Peace and love to all mothers!
