|This would be my mama and I. Years ago, but still. :)|
I am grateful for Mother's Day because I am grateful to be a mother. I am grateful to have a mother who has become one of my best and closest friends. I am grateful that we have the kind of relationship where we allowed each other to be our own women, something I think is hard to do in mother-daughter relationships sometimes. We both make mistakes, we both are very different women, and with her help, I hope that someday my own children and I will become friends too- not just parents & their kids.
In reality, I have no real grandiose designs for what I want for Mother's Day. I'd like a cinnamon roll and some great coffee. I'd like it to be a nice sunny day, so we can walk the dog, go to the park, browse greenhouses. I'd like us to make a lovely dinner, take a nice hot bath, and maybe get a little extra sleep that night. (Though I won't object if my husband decides to clean every inch of the house.)

The best part? I get to write about being a mother. So yes, I am grateful for Mother's Day. Happy Mother's Day to every one of you wonderful mothers out there.
