How fast has time gone by? My daughter is now 5 years old and we’re celebrating Mother’s Day for the 5th time. My husband and I have always believed that it’s the little things in life that matter. There is no gigantic celebration on just one day but we try to appreciate every day that comes our way.
My daughter had made a Mother’s Day gift for me at school but somehow, it didn’t make it home. As I watched her eyes start to well up with tears, I let her know that I loved her no matter what and that all I really need is her on Mother’s Day. In that wee little tear strained voice she said, “But I made it for you and I put a lot of effort into it.” My response, “and did you make it just for me?” Daughter, *nods*. Me, “Then that’s all I need.” *big hugs*
Since then, my daughter says “All you need is me, right mom?” Absolutely.
Here’s to a wonderful Mother’s Day for all who celebrate. Know that we are all loved in our own unique way.
