What do I want for Mother’s Day?
My husband has been asking me all week what I want for Mother’s Day and I keep telling him I don’t know.
I just don’t know.
Do I want the house cleaned or the laundry done?
Do I want flowers and perhaps a gift card?
What would I like for dinner?
Do I want to sleep in and even take a long nap too?
Sure, my car needs to be cleaned and my floors do too.
And a fresh bouquet and a gift card would be a lovely thing to receive.
Dinner someone else makes sounds nice, along with a clean kitchen afterward.
Those are all wonderful things to have on Mother’s Day, and I sure do appreciate the offers, gratitude, and praise.
But I don’t care about those things right now.
I just don’t.
And I realize that what I really want, I can’t have.
Because for Mother’s Day, I just want everything and everyone to be okay.
I believe this wish is on every mother’s heart right now.
This Mother’s Day is different from all the rest. And I’m sure mothers everywhere are doing their best with the job they love most. I’m sure they are grateful to be celebrated for all their hard work too.
But more than anything, we all just want everything and everyone to be okay…

Until everything and everyone is okay, I hope and pray YOU are safe, well, and loved.
