Daily Reminders from Mom


My mother sends some of the BEST emails. Usually the subject line reads “Mommy” and they never fail to make me smile. Today’s email was no exception and I had to share.

The background: Yesterday I was having a no good, very bad day. There wasn’t anything particular wrong, it was just one of those off days everyone has. I unloaded to Mom and, like always, felt much better. This morning I arrived to work, checked my gmail, and was greeted by the following email…

Good morning Little Lady.

I hope today will be better than yesterday.

It is difficult at times to count your blessings but I hope that you can do so…

God loves you
Mommy and Alice love you
And then there is Matt
Sergeant and Love Tap love you
You have a wealth of wonderful friends
And the list is endless…

Much peace to you today even though challenges will occur.

I’ll be saving this list for a rainy day because she is right… No matter what, always count your blessings.

And remember that Mommy knows best.
