Happy Mothers Day and What I Know For Sure

It's almost Mother's Day.

Being a mother is complicated, wonderful, heart-tugging, heart-wrenching, heart-warming and heart-breaking; it is exhausting, mind blowing, mundane and miraculous.

Being a mother opens you up to more love and compassion than you ever thought possible.

Mothering is not for wimps, it is a god damn hard job.  That is why, if you're a mother, I hope that you are taking time this Sunday to pat yourself on the back, take a deep breath of gratitude or just sit quietly and give yourself a little peace.  Peace and quiet and love.

Quick, watch this video while your husband is in the room, maybe he'll see it and get the hint.  Breakfast in bed is a great idea for mom when dad helps.

Another good idea to honor mothers you know, or yourself, is to buy the e-book (also available for Amazon Kindle and Barnes & Noble Nook) Mother Letters: Sharing the Mess & Glory.  

What I know for sure is this, I want some time alone on Mother's Day.  What do you want?  How are you celebrating?

Here's what else I know for sure (this week):

I haven't read "50 Shades of Grey," but I might.  I have some friends that are reading it and their marriages well, um, have never been better.  If you know what I mean....

I didn't want to do it, but I actually spend some time watching Don't Be Tardy For the Wedding.  And I like it.  I like it so much I sort of want to buy a wig from Kim's wig line.  And I am rooting for Kim and Kroy.  

PhotoBooths are amazing.  I've always loved them, but I am really loving the new-ish trend of having the photobooths at events.  There was one at a charity event I went to last weekend.

Twitter is still incredibly fun.  You should follow me, even my dad is following me, click here.  C'mon join the fun on Twitter. @AngelaYBlood (And I'm trying to get to 500 followers by my birthday in June, I'm 10 follows away.)

Here's some solid advice for teenage girls from Jon Hamm. Yup, the guy from Mad Men.  It's video for Rookie Magazine's "Ask a Grown Man" series.  And it's good.

Have a great weekend.
