I have guilt about wanting to actually be alone or with other women sipping cocktails on Mother's Day rather than being with my kids. It is after all Mother's Day. I remember making cards and silly gifts for my mother growing up and you are supposed to celebrate with her right? Well, now being a mother I have visions of quiet on this day, of being reflective if I choose to be, or just being able to eat a meal without a baby screaming at me. I'm not saying I want the whole day, just a little bit of time; that is what I will be asking for as a gift next year. I'm a stay at home mom and to me what a nice way to feel the joy of what I do by getting the day off!
Balance is elusive sometimes. I don't eat well for a few days and my body screams for fresh greens. I miss a day at the gym and I get crabby. I'm over worked I can't appreciate. Balance brings me joy. So next year, I will leave the guilt behind and find some balance!
