For the last six years I have enjoyed the privilege of having someone else’s children in my home for part of Mother’s day. It is not until last year that I was able to celebrate this day with my own child. Holidays, including Mother’s Day, are important to me. I try to foster this attitude in my children.
Over the years I have reminded them of holidays. Encouraging them to make cards, work on crafts, or taking them out to purchase a little something for their Mother. It never occurred to me that I wouldn’t help my stepchildren with gifts for their Mothers on holidays. Why wouldn’t I? She is the reason I am blessed.
