I would like to say thank you.I really needed this today of all days

I like to consider myself a teacher, teaching my grandchildren what kindness and recognition looks like for me. I tell them what I eould love to do on holidays, birthdays, how I like to celebrate. Mother's Day is tricky becaue of what you mention Karen, so we do a th k you for mother,s ceremony, lighting candles, all eat cake and the gifts from school in our case can go wherever they choose. Our home special day, traditions we establish. I help them consider what makes them feel happy as we create our clebrations, they are still young, 9 and 6... learning gratefulness and thankfulness, learning to notice the feeling of appreciation inside themselves and practice showing it.

Well said Karen! For me it's pretty much just another day....I don't expect anything and am pleasantly surprised when my kids do remember to just say HMD! Have a peaceful day ! Busy week here with preschool graduation, ballet performances by my 14 yo God and baseball games for 3 grands... To top it off we have a friend staying here two of those nights and we leave Saturday for two weeks... Cancer check up and back east to see in laws.... Thankful I only have one go living with me part time... Will join your health thing upon my return... Thanks for your ste?!!!
