The very 1st day of May comes with one thing on my mind; Mother’s day! I won’t deny the fact that I desire to be celebrated just as much as any other mother.
It’s very beautiful when I am reminded that my daily unconditional love for my children/family is not in vein and I am not tucked away in a dark corner. I enjoy knowing that my little ones believe that I matter and what I do out love for them is appreciated.
Of course my babies remind me that I matter almost every single day with hand written notes, endless hugs, wet kisses, endless “I love you” and for that I am truly grateful.
Personally, I am not the one to keep endless wish lists for every occasion but I do only for mother’s day and yes this a hint for my children (or call it husband). I absolutely like getting pampered on that day and yes I will happily unwrap the lovely gifts presented to me in any shape or size.
Again though, real hugs, real words, a silly note beats them all.
But, while I am at it, I will lay out my yearlong hint list that has been presented to my beloved and maybe perhaps it will have you thinking of ideas for your own mama.

Great post! I love the quote at the end, every woman maybe able to have kids but it takes more to actually love them.
Thank-you Shereena my dear. Over the years, I have personally been loved my beautiful women that are not my biological mothers. Women that have mothered me without holding back. These women have loved me; that’s my first basis for my statement. 💞
You’re welcome, I see, definitely takes love to be a mother
It’s fun to get a better idea about you from your list. I chuckled over the “paperless towels.” For years I was able to use old cloth diapers for chores. I guess they were “paperless” too.
Paperless towels save so much though and can be any fabric one desires.
I hope you get some goodies from your list, along with lots of hugs, kisses, and love! Happy (early) Mother’s Day!
Thank-you Becca. My hope is that my children will continue to know how much I love them and to understand that my love for them as a mother is unconditional; they never have to gain it in any way. Hugs🌹
Yes I agree…“What describes a mother to me is not the ability to bear children but having the heart to love them” Mother’s Day’s meaning has changed for me. In March of 2016 my mother died, then in April 2016 my only son died…so “what describes a mother to me is NOT the hope of being remembered by the ones I love, but that as a mom that I continue to remember the sweet notes, cards and treasured times we laughed together.”
Thank-you Barbara. I hurt for you on both your loses; I know I cannot slightly understand your pain. You are absolutely right….. children pour so much into our lives that even in their absence, we can still remember details about the touch of their love. Many, many hugs dearest Barbra…. continue to hang onto the only one that knows your heart. 🌹❤
Thank you, daily reading of blogs and posting has given me a great distraction. My post entitled Foreign Correspondent records the picture of heaven that the Spirit gave me. God’s promises are what I hold onto. May you enjoy the gift of motherhood and cherish every moment with your kids. Happy Mothers Day.
Happy mother’s day Barbara. I have grieved the loss of my own mother since I was a little girl. And I know my situation is different from a mother that loses a child. Mother’s day has always been very hard in a different way; feeling lost as many were celebrating their mothers. I pray that your heart will be comforted through many seasons. Much love and Happy mother’s day to you 🌹
I enjoyed looking at your wish list. My list might include a new computer, real computer desk, and chocolate in any form. Since my husband barely uses a computer, I’m on my own in that department, but I can count on him to provide the chocolate.
A computer is a good one. I always try to wish for my needs. Some days it’s as simple as a stock pot or even silver Ware. Happy mother’s day to you dearest Anne🌹
Love your wish list…you are my kind of gal! ❤ 😉
My babies will probably just take a pass on the whole list thing; they prefer presenting me with handmade cards for mother’s day. I love all the above though 🌹. You are definitely my long lost sis for sure😁❤
I hear you! My girls will likely go the way of the handmade card as well! Although this year, I think butterfly cupcakes filled to the brim with raspberry cream are on the cards as well!
Nothing beats a handmade card from our children.❤
Or homemade baked goods!!!! I got some delicious strawberry cupcakes with raspberry cream from Younger Daughter! (Early gift)
Yum. That sounds delicious. Enjoy mama🌹💝
Hee hee! Love your post! It never hurts to have a wish list … just in case someone is looking for a gift idea for you!!!
And yes, all us mamas do love a little fuss and TLC, whether we’d care to admit it or not!
😁🌹. I will admit the fact that I do need a little tlc.
Cool list! I love the necklace! 🙂 My husband mentioned to LM tonight that Mother’s Day is next week, and he got excited and talked about making me something extra special ❤
