I am thankful for many, many things. I am thankful for –
…four generations of women in my family celebrating together.
…children that are happy, healthy and feel loved.
…a Husband sent by G-d.
…a dog that doesn’t smell so bad today.
…the lox and bagels waiting for me and the cheesecake we are about to receive. Amen.
…friends to light my life.
…the generosity of others.
…the influence of grandparents in my children’s lives.
…the memories of those not with us today, but who smile down upon us.
…great pizza. Eaten in the bathtub.
…knowing the keys to true happiness.
…a great glass of red.
…fast cars and diamond rings. And the simple things.
…belly laughs and silly giggles.
…a hug that doubles as a tackle.
…a child’s surprising perspective.
To all the moms celebrating today – I wish you all this and more. May your day start with kisses and giggles and end with a bubble bath. And may every moment in between warm your soul.
Happy Mother’s Day, Internet.
