For years, I was hurt that Dragon did not acknowledge Valentines day but it didn't take long to figure out why. Why choose one day a year to show someone you love them? He comes home with little gifts just because. The date on the calendar doesn't matter.
Recently, I started seeming Mothers day and Fathers day the same way. I don't want flowers that going to wilt, a potted plant to kill or stinky cheep perfume. I don't want a day at a spa or a special dinner just for me. Kinda greedy to expect these things every year. Why are we giving each other a "special" gift?
One day out of the entire year does not make me feel appreciated as a mother. The little things that happen every day do! The bubble bath my husband fixes for me. Breakfast in bed, waking up to the smell of coffee and not because they had to on mothers day. Why? Just because. I love it when my kids show progress in their school work or play a new song on the piano. A clean kitchen I didn't have to clean.
One day my familial has to say "I love you" or a lifetime of showing how much they care? It isn't hard for me to pick which one I would rather have.
For those of you choose to celebrate Mothers Day, have a great day with your family! For those who don't, have a great day with your family!
Ps, Dragon does not have a collection of ugly ties or dusty bottles of Old spice.
