Every where you go and all around you are sales that are going for Mother's Day. Everyone wants to get the perfect gift for their Mom. I now think differently of what I would like for Mother's Day, than I did when I was a young Mom.

 This is the list I used to want...
- everyone to do their chores with out complaint
-everyone share with each other
-not to fight or back talk for the whole day
-homemade breakfast in bed
-no tattling all day
-make your bed

Now my list would be...
- stay close to the Lord
-make a difference for good in the world
-keep in touch with Dad and I
-strive to stay close and available for each of your family members
-do what it takes to be happy
-remember who you are and live it!

That's a little different now! Now I just am grateful for my family and pray that they are happy and healthy, that is a huge blessing that many Mothers don't even have. So I don't need presents this year for Mother's Day, I am just grateful to be Mom. Good night dear friends!

It is not until you become a mother that your judgment slowly turns to compassion and understanding. Erma Bombeck
