1. Happy Mother's Day Tall Grandma, my Mom, Grandma to the Little Studs. We will be going to Brunch on Sunday without the kiddos, then meeting up for Bowling after. Should be a fun day with Family.. I Love you Mom. This year has been impossible and I am so proud of you for taking it day by day. 2. Good Luck to my Buddies on their first EVER 20 mile training run!! Kerrie HERE and Zoe HERE, I wish I could join you...wait that is a lie, I am sorta glad that my 20 mile Run days are over for a bit. Must post the (overused) photo below because it makes me laugh every time.. 3. Someone is on an AMAZING ADVENTURE today for a good cause. The Stellar EMZ HERE will be running for 24 Hours on a Treadmill to raise money for Charity! I cannot even fathom running 24 miles on a treadmill, let along 24 hours. Props to EMZ for the Inspiration and dedication. In Boston I had the honor of meeting EMZ for a brief few minutes, I recognized her by the back pocket in her jeans of all things. Go EMZ!! WE are all cheering for you!!
4. I told myself I was going to let someone else do it...but I just cant... Sooooo I will be planning a PNW Blogger Hosted Carbo Night before Rock N Roll Seattle. The Dinner/meet-up will most likely be on Friday June 24th around 5:00PM. That way we can all meet up but if you don't want to eat there you can still go home and eat your preferred pre-race fuel. If you are interested in joining us please email me firstname.lastname@example.org. I would like to get a good count this week so I can reserve the appropriate sized space. 5. Yep Mother's Day is for me too :) My gift this year is a secret, which I will share with you all very soon. This weekend we will shop for an outfit for Muscle Man for Tall Brother-in-Law's wedding later this month, try to find non-dairy/milk options for Little Stud #2 he is allergic and we really need to find alternate options for the entire family, possibly get my hair cut, run with my Fleet Feet Buddies, possibly start packing for a Work Trip which I may be going on this month, and maybe sneak in some RELAXING!!
Being a Mom is the easiest and hardest job I have ever had. Some days I feel like I am on it, like I can give them everything and know exactly what to do. Other days I feel overwhelmed and LOST. The treasure is knowing that those blue-eyed, dimpled cheeked Little Studs are mine and they love me regardless of how hard I may be on myself. I will make mistakes, but I will not dwell the days I fall short, I will use those mistakes to make me better.
I leave you with a few Mother's Day Inspire Quotes:
"A mother is a person who seeing there are only four pieces of pie for five people, promptly announces she never did care for pie." Tenneva Jordan
"Who ran to help me when I fell,
And would some pretty story tell,
Or kiss the place to make it well?
"When you are a mother, you are never really alone in your thoughts. A mother always has to think twice, once for herself and once for her child." Sophia Loren
"There is no way to be a perfect mother, and a million ways to be a good one." Jill Churchill
