We are a hop and a skip and a tiny leap to Mother’s Day! It is a day when I like to look back on many years of fears and tears, joy and a whole bunch of laughter.
The biggest change in my life coming down the mommy memory lane is my oldest son moving out and testing his flying wings. I could go all sappy and sit here and cry, but I already have done that for several days so I am taking a break and just enjoying a few happy memories by looking at our Memory Jar.
I have a memory jar for each boy and will share a photo of one this week.
Now on to the show!
Three Simple Tasks:
- Empty all the trash cans. Zip around with a big old Hefty Bag, I like the black ones because you cannot see through them and anything gross is hidden from my sensitive mommy eyes. Overflowing trashcans increase clutter, I am sure there is a scientific study on this someplace in the Google Universe.
- Make Your Bed: I am sure everyone makes there bed every single morning, but just in case, please make it today. Who knows? You may get a moment to sneak away and lay on that bed and read a few pages or your current “ Mommy Time Novel of the Week”.
- Mother’s Day Time Out: Take a peek at your calendar and find an empty slot someplace in there for this weekend. Pencil in at least 10 minutes of mommy-time to do a little self-pampering, meditation, prayer time or reflection. You totally deserve this time and so do I, by golly.
Have a rocking day moms!
