20 Reasons Why Every Day is Mother’s Day

Posted on 2 min read

1. I have the Sunday New York Times delivered. I read the Fashion and Style sections first, followed by Travel and then the real news.
2. Every morning I drink Starbuck’s Kenya coffee with real half and half and sugar.
3. I cover all my blemishes with Jane Iredale cosmetics. I use Purepressed Mineral Powder (20 SPF), applied with the Handi Brush and finished with the Antioxidant Hydration Setting Spray. It’s probably 100% water, but it feels really good when I spray it in my face.
4. I walk for at least 45 minutes six days a week in every season.
5. I have a DVR and I use it to record the Real Housewives Series, Make Me a Supermodel and Oprah.
6. I buy a book whenever I want, I see a lot of movies and I listen to Prince and Lil Wayne.
7. I only wear Hanky Panky panties and Lost in Lace Wacoal bras in Black and Nude.
8. I don’t cook dinner Friday, Saturday, or Sunday.
9. I have orchids in my bathroom.
10. I have smart and supportive friends and family.
11. I eat a piece of dark chocolate every day after dinner.
12. I’m healthy. Thank God for Advil.
13. I had a mother who loved me and introduced me to Passover.
14. I have a father who loves me and makes Gumbo whenever I ask.
15. I’m able to volunteer my time.
16. I look out at the ocean every day…from my living room, kitchen and bedroom.
17. I have internet.
18. Barrack Hussein Obama is my president and I helped to elect him.
19. I have a husband who loves me and still thinks I’m hot after 17 years.
20. I have a son who I gave life to and in turn he did the same for me.
