It’s that time of year, where we pride ourselves on being the best moms we can be. We secretly blame ourselves for every time one of our children fail. Forgetting to pat ourselves on the back for a job well done. It isn’t until the years pass by, do we really see who we are as mothers. What we have sacrificed and what we have gained. The time spent nurturing and loving our children to be all they can be.
So on this day we cherish things, both big and small. Whether it’s the handmade cards and gifts from our children. The hugs and kisses that light up our hearts. Or the breathtaking jewelry and lavish clothes we wear. With all the joy we receive on this day; we are reminded that every day is Mother’s Day. Not just one Sunday in May.

Its in the way we move, think and act that will make others envious.We might not have it all, but then again who does. Someone somewhere will not like us just for being who we are. For one reason or another, jealousy will always lurk as we move about. Admiration will rear it’s head, but not too high. Sometimes we can be the poorest person in the world and have the most riches. We could even be paid and be envious as hell. Life is all about winning and losing. People just hate what they can’t have or don’t know how to relate to. But in life we gotta run with the good and build up the bad. After all how jealous can we really be. Maybe its secret admiration for something, no matter how big or small. Its just in the way we move, we just can’t have it all. Human perfection doesn’t exist.
Funny thing about relationships is that no one knows what really goes on behind closed doors. Some may speculate, others may think they can resonate. But truth is such thoughts and feelings vary from couple to couple. What’s between he and she, isn’t always for they. For the good seems to go unnoticed; blind to they. Where the ugliness is magnified times a thousand. Who knows what to believe. But what isn’t for they, shouldn’t matter. Relationships aren’t color blind, there’s a whole spectrum of colors. Different shades for various angles of relations.
I know sometimes the world may be cruel and people might not understand you. But they don’t know you the way I do. You are more than autism, you are you. So even when you feel like you aren’t winning, we are. For every little accomplishment, brings joy to my heart. Every time you learn a new skill, my hope is restored. Each day I see each of you; I know my purpose. So when life gets too scary or you start to feel like you can’t do it anymore, know mommy is here. The fight is far from over.

Love is so mysterious, yet unpredictable. We never know who we will fall in love with; or when someone will touch our hearts. Sometimes love has other plans for us and it chooses for us; because we just can’t help who we love. The heart just knows what it wants; even if we can’t find the words to explain it.
Our hearts have the capacity to love anyone we want to love. Yet it doesn’t mean we can or will love everyone the same or equally. As love is a complex emotion that can either be spiritual, mental or physical; and/or all the above. For when it comes to love, it isn’t always easy to attach words to such a powerful feeling. As love, cannot always be described using spoken words.
Sometimes actions are the only way we can tell someone we love them; when we can’t find the right words to say “I love you”. As there is no single way to describe the way in which we love one another. For there is not just one way to give and receive love. So, whether it be the unconditional bond between a mother and child; or a romantic relationship felt between husband and wife. When love is “in the air” or present; it speaks for itself; no matter how the message is conveyed. Love is love as long as its heartfelt.
Hold fast to dreams, for if dreams die life is a broken-winged bird that cannot fly.
Life is for the living. Death is for the dead. Let music be life and death a note unsaid.
When a man starts out to build the world, he first starts with himself.
Like a welcome summer rain, humor may suddenly cleanse and cool the earth, air and you.
