marvelous monday: mother’s day every day

Hope everyone had a wonderful Mother’s Day yesterday! I feel very blessed I got to celebrate with not only my amazing mom, but my grandma, too! She and my Grandpap were in town for my brother’s graduation and decided to stay a couple extra days so we could all celebrate Mother’s Day together as well.

I think it’s great to have a day specially dedicated to celebrating mothers, but I also think we should make our mothers and wives {and all the mother figures in our lives} feel special and loved each and every day.

Here are some ways you could make every day Mother’s Day:

– send a handwritten card or thank-you note just because

– pick up some flowers on your way home, or send some over the Internet

– do a load of your mother’s laundry to thank her for the many, many loads of laundry she’s done for you throughout your life! {ditto for washing a sinkful of dirty dishes, filling up near-empty gas tank, or straightening up a messy living room}

– go grocery shopping and cook dinner

– pick up the phone and call just to see how her day is going and say you love her

The older I get, the more and more I realize how extremely fortunate I am to have such an incredible mom who is also my friend, confidante, advice guru, and role model of a strong, confident, intelligent and inside-and-out beautiful woman. I’m so happy I get to spend a few more weeks at home with my mom {and the rest of my family!} before heading back to Indiana for the summer.

I’m so grateful for the other marvelous mother figures in my life: my grandma, my aunts, Holly’s mom Susan, Erica’s mom Darai, my mom’s best friend Alicia, and various teachers and mentors including Tania, Aimee, and Rima. And I also remember my grandma Auden and dear friend Jewell who are no longer with us, but who I still think of often.

Have a marvelous Monday, and spread some love! ❤
