This is my 12th Mother’s Day. There really are no words to adequately describe what it means to be a mother. However some words that come to mind are:
- Role Model
I no longer have the luxury of having a mom, and with that, comes a new appreciation for those who do.
I often reflect on what I learned from my mother; things I mimic as a parent, and things that I vow not replicate. There is one thing that I know, and that is my mom did the best she could. It wasn’t always necessarily how I would parent, but in her reality, she tried, and for that, I love her.
I am sure that there are things about me that my girls wish were different; maybe I’m too much of a perfectionist, perhaps I’m too hard on them, but hopefully, one day, they will realize that whether they agreed with my parenting or not, I did the best I could.
Today I toast to all of the mothers who have willingly sacrificed some of themselves to provide a better life for their children.
I will leave you with this….
A friend (and sBo client) sent me the following text today:
“Happy Mother’s Day! Thanks for helping make my life easier so I can enjoy being a mom when I have free time!”
On a professional level, it was one of the nicest things anyone has ever said to me. When I started sBo, I wanted it to be more than just about having an organized pantry. This text validates my purpose for founding simply B organized. So to my friend, who I deem a great mom- Thank You.
And on a lighter note:
