Mome reads Mommy, My daughter's way to spell it when she was younger... It stuck. My son calls me Mome... just like it looks. I now sign all my notes to them "Love, Mome". It's our inside secret and makes them smile. I always want them to smile.

Mother's Day Perspective

How was your Mother's Day?
I had one friend tell me around 3:30pm yesterday that her Husband was watching TV and had just realized it was Mom's Day...nice. My day was pretty much like every other day, except I got a gift and a card. I was feeling a little less than special, and then I put it into perspective.

I have 2 beautiful children.
I have a husband who loves his kids.
I have a home to live in.
We have enough food to feed the four of us, a dog and a bunch of fish.
We have clean clothes in the appropriate sizes and for the current season.
We have shoes and jackets to keep us warm.
We have cars to drive to the places we need to go.

I am a mom and am taking care of my kids. That's all I ever wanted. I don't need the gifts and cards, maybe just a day with other Moms to celebrate US!
