I am a firm believer in declaring miracles. Why not? It’s so easy to do, and such a wonderful way to create an amazing day. I keep a miracle journal on my desk – it’s the best way I’ve found to keep track of all the amazing things swirling around my life – while reminding me how good things are on the days when it just doesn’t seem that way… Today, the day before Mother’s Day, I declare “Mother’s are Miracles”.
The definition of the word miracle:
Main Entry: mir·a·cle
1: an extraordinary event manifesting divine intervention in human affairs
2: an extremely outstanding or unusual event, thing, or accomplishment
Mother’s amaze me. How they juggle kids, running a household, and in many cases, a career, is astonishing to me. When I was teenager, I waited tables throughout high school. What a great education. Managing multiple tables, handling orders, dealing with a cranky cook, coaching bus boys into the results in wanted, and serving hungry guests taught me about the art of orchestration, improvising and doing whatever it takes to make it all flow. I imagine motherhood is a little bit like waiting tables – but without the tips!
Frankly I am in awe of women who choose to be mom’s. Not only because I am not cut out to be one, but because I marvel at the amount of grace, strength, courage, and down right gumption it takes day in and day out.
One might say that the art of mothering is “an extraordinary event manifesting divine intervention in human affairs”. Indeed, being a mom is a miracle.
Today I declare “Mother’s are Miracles”. And say thank you to YOU for choosing to be a miraculous mom. We are all better for the love, joy and nurturing you offer the world each day.
Happy Mother’s Day all you miracle moms out there!
