and I am ok with it!
I do not expect gifts nor do I have any sense of entitlement. I am doing what I should be doing as a mom.
We are having financial problems and DH could not afford to get me anything. He was upset about it. I told him don't be. No gold, or diamond, or flower; any other material thing cannot compare to the gift he's already given me-making me a mother. That, in itself, is a gift enough, a gift he will never top (unless we have another).
And why should moms be recognized one day a year for all their hard work and effort? I get that daily. Every kiss, every smile, every giggle and cuddle is my reward for a job well done.
