Okay, so the title of my post might sould a little strange, but this is what I've been thinking: Why do some wives expect a big gift from their husbands for MOTHER'S day? Hmmm... I always thought it was about getting those cute little homemade cards from your kids, and an extra hug. Keith also must have thought about this a bit, because he commented after church that it just didn't make sense. We have anniversary's and Valentine's Day for those special 'husband-wife' gifts. Not to mention birthdays and Christmas. Who decided that the husband should buy the wife a Mother's Day gift?
I applaud those husbands who help their children do something special for mom, but I don't think that we as wives and mothers should expect a thing from our husbands, beyond the normal everyday courtesies that they already show us. So, thanks Keith for understanding me!!
Anyway, I wish all of you moms, and those who wish to be moms, the best Mother's Day ever! May God grant you the desire of your heart as you follow Him. I big "I LOVE YOU!!" to my mom and my mother-in-law. God sure has blessed me with two amazing women to be my moms! I hope I keep learning from you both.
