|These two are my greatest accomplishment|
I am a big fan of Mother's Day, and not for the reasons you might think. Ok, maybe a few...Of course I love the fact that I am pampered and doted upon. But even more than that, I love the fact that my kids understand how their positive, loving actions put a huge smile on my face. I tell them all the time that it is fairly easy to make me happy. All they need to do is be kind, not whine and be grateful. That is why I lay out all of my Mother's Day requests well before the big day, leaving nothing to chance, so that my husband can then easily carry them out.

This year, I asked for a foot rub. I love a massage, but there is nothing that makes me relax and let go of stress quicker than a good ole foot rub. The last two things I ask for were not to have to cook a meal or clean a dirty dish. To me, this is a way to feel pampered! Plus, seeing the joy on my kids' faces when they accomplish doing something kind for me that makes me smile. It feel my lips turning up into a smile just thinking about it the happiness.
Life's simple, happy moments are some of a mother's truest treasured memories. Happy Mother's Day to all my fellow mom's. May you feel loved and appreciated today and everyday.
