Happy Mother's Day You Glorious Mommies!

Saturday, May 09, 2020

Happy Mother's Day to you glorious mommies!

Isn't it fabulous that we get to be real-life heroes to our littles? I remember the times well!

With this life in quarantine and my boy and I living in different cities it is going to be a tough day tomorrow, but I'll hold up, I am strong. If I need to stand in the Wonderwoman pose to release that dopamine and truly feel it, I will. I was his hero for so many years and now that he is grown there are times that come when I get to be again. It's just a bit sad to not get to see him this go around.

Anyways, enough sadness. I didn't mean to make this come across that way at all! I've been a bit confused all week with what day it was and finally, finally it is Saturday, the day before the holiday... but I've spent the last 3 days thinking it was Saturday so it's been a long holiday for me! LOL

Anyway, I've been frustrated for at least 7 months now by my Fitbit, which I have replaced twice with the same model because I do not like all the bells and whistles. I do not want companies knowing where I am, how active or, truth be told, how inactive I am, my heartbeat, etc. I just don't like it.

BUT, I had to do it, I had to accept that Fitbit Flex 2 is my past because without my tracker I do not get the reward of seeing those steps add up and so, I confess, I have not been walking. My quarantine has consisted of sleeping, watching Netflix, playing Diggy's Adventure on Facebook and, well, mostly those 3 things.

I am grateful my church found ways to keep on going with fellowships on Zoom and services on Facebook Live, still it's not the same. The reason I mention this is that tomorrow, Mother's Day, we will be able to wave at each other from our cars as our Governor is allowing Drive-In church services starting tomorrow. So mommies, it will be a great Mother's Day, I will be surrounded by loved ones, albeit not my kiddo, and I will be eagerly awaiting the arrival of my new Fitbit Inspire HR!

I hope you have a wonderful Mother's Day weekend and maybe follow my lead... splurge a little on yourself this year... you are a hero after all!

Hugs and kisses, prayers and faith to you and yours!
