Manic: My life of a busy Mama!
Managed: Stopping for a moment to say thanks to the woman who taught me how to manage my manic tendencies, which has made me a better mother.
So Happy Mother’s Day, Mom. And a simple message of thanks…
1. Thank you for everything you’ve done for me from infancy to energetic little girl to testy teen to young woman feeling my way in this world to newlywed to married working woman to motherhood…and to now adjusting to my changing middle-aged body! You have guided me every step of the way and I thank you for that!
2. Sorry for my teen years and all of my other immature and emotional moments! Thanks for always being there through it. Raising a daughter (now I know first-hand!) is not easy in this manic world.
3 The most important message of all…I LOVE YOU!!
And to all of you mothers, step-mothers, mothers-in-law (I adore mine) and mothers of pets out there…Happy Mother’s Day weekend!
And I’ll leave you with a photo of a magnet that I keep on my fridge, that my good friend Michelle’s mother, Ann, gave me years ago when I became a Mama…
Ain’t it the truth, sisters?! Happy Mother’s Day!
