Mother’s Day is in next Sunday, and I’m a bit indecisive… here’s what I’ve got…
Maybe I want a day alone,
Maybe I want to plant in the garden, or receive a a classic order
Maybe I want to turn off my phone for 24 hours,
Maybe I want a day of magazines and new books,
Maybe I want to relax with a new and pleasurable friend..
and dance in underwear without a care,
Maybe, actually, I want the day with the kids so I can sit back and marvel at their splendor,
Maybe, I want to eat dinner alone and not feel uncomfortable,
Maybe I want a pretty dress with nowhere to go
Maybe I want a cast iron set to throw down on a pie with a pretty new and easy cookbook
Maybe I want no news alerts,
Maybe, I want to splurge on a new-to-me lamp for my livingroom. To hardly turn on, but just to look at.
Maybe I want to help prisoned women (and mothers) with just my lips. Or babies, 0-12.
Maybe I want it all. At once. In one day.
Hold the guilt.
Cue the music.
And so it is.
What’s on your personal list? Or rather, something you’re giving to a mother in your life?
