Happy Mother’s Day to you Moms. The world is a better place because of you. I hope that each and every one of you has a wonderful Mother’s Day, doing whatever it is you choose to do today, whether it is being with your children or not. Since my children are grown and have families of their own and don’t live close by, I will be celebrating my day by trying to do nothing at all. This is hard for me to do, and every year I fail at it. In fact, as I sit here blogging about doing nothing, I realize that once again, I am doing something, blogging, lol. Already I have failed at doing nothing. Oh well, it is Mother’s Day, so I can change my mind, right?
Happy Mother’s Day to my mother, who I will not see today as she does not live close by, but she will be visiting next week. I am looking forward to seeing her and my step-father and taking a day off to spend some time with them both and make it a special day for all of us.
