Quote of the Day

Happy Memorial Day Everyone! Our family spent the day at a local festival. It was very fun, it rained a little and because we are in Florida, it was HOT. Hope you all enjoyed your long weekend. And don’t forget to hug and thank those service members in your life. We owe them a huge debt of gratitude.

Since it is a holiday I’m taking a day off (sort of) and instead of writing a post, I wanted to share this quote from Oprah. It is a reminder that what we do as mothers and caretakers everyday is valuable. Even on the days when it doesn’t feel that way.

“We should no longer allow a mother to be defined as ‘just a mom’. It is on her back that great nations are built. We should no longer allow any woman’s voice to be drowned out or disregarded. As we affirm other women, and we teach our sons, husbands and friends to hold them in the highest regard, we honor both the mothers whose shoulders we’ve stood on and the daughters who will one day stand tall on ours.”

Now, go hug your kids.
