Did anyone else experience the Monday morning hangover affect this morning from Mother’s Day? I totally had this attitude and thought process of “I don’t have to do that today” yesterday and I did thoroughly enjoy the day with my family.
However, at 9:00 PM last night I found myself doing the boys laundry because if I didn’t, they weren’t going to have clothes to wear to preschool today. A day off! Ha!! Mothering never takes a day off.
But you know what else I discovered as I was switching their laundry loads last night? That I’m grateful I get to do their laundry. I’m grateful that I get to be their mom. I’m grateful that they both had their favorite clothes to get dressed in this morning for school.
Because those smiles…the ones I got this morning when they slipped on their favorite shorts were priceless as they set out for their day. Mothering can be exhausting, overwhelming, never-ending, demanding, and all sorts of things. But it is also so rewarding, so fulfilling, and so incredible.
What priceless moments did you experience from your Mother’s Day celebrations?
