missjunebug re-read her previous Mother’s Day posts and came away thinking she’d covered her feelings about this holiday pretty well. The take-away?
She loves being a mom! It’s that simple! She loves her two rad kids ElderJB and TinyJB! It has been an honor and a privilege to help raise these boys along with Mr.JB’s invaluable love and guidance.
The only thing she regrets is that just when they become their most interesting (and entertaining) as young adults, ElderJB and TinyJB fly the proverbial coop and nest elsewhere! But then that is the beauty part of the plan as her dear, departed JBDad would say. The JBParentals have done their job and the said kids answer to themselves, making their way in the wider world pretty much on their own.
missjunebug is thankful for a connected world of emails, texts, e-cards, phone calls (by land, by cell, by FaceTime, by Skype) that are available for moms to communicate with their hatchlings on a regular basis! And for those of you who live close to your children (luck by design!) good on you; missjunebug is a little jealous, but she knows that is not in the cards for her at least right now. Who knows what the future holds?
So Happy Mother’s Day to all you devoted moms! Stay connected, but maybe stay out of the way, too! Birds gotta fly! Children gotta grow and go!
missjunebug is enjoying this special day with breakfast out with her Mr.JB (Thanks, Ric’s Restaurant and Mr.JB!), a little shopping-new cruise-ready walking shoes-Privos! for missjunebug and J&M’s for Mr.JB, new purse-spring green Baggalini!, new pens-Sarasa Gel Retractables in a rainbow of colors! (missjunebug â™¥ school supplies!), and a little post-shopping viewing of her fav show House Hunters International! She even got a couple of Hallmark e-cards from Mr.JB, Spoonbug, and LeftyCat that were high on hilarity with rockin’ musical accompaniment for chair-dancing, one of missjunebug’s favorite semi-active activities.
Almost a perfect day!
She’s heard from TinyJB via his sometime maligned but ever-so-useful-for-quick-connections Facebook posting that was simplicity itself–happy mother’s day (sic). Thanks, TinyJB! missjunebug â™¥ you big time. (But work on capitalizing those proper nouns!) She’s hoping Â ElderJB checks in, too! Time zone issues always plague such connections, but missjunebug thinks he might come through before Mother’s Day officially concludes! If she does hear from ElderJB, it will be a perfect Mother’s Day!
missjunebug hopes all the mothers out there have a fab day that honors them for all they do and all the love they give! Mothers rock!
