What Mama Really Wants May 14 2017

"I want you" were the words that caught my attention. A friend's Facebook post turned out to be anonymous message to her children. She asked to share it and when I did it seem to strike a cord with over 100 page likes. Could a simple request for Mother's Day be so simple? You be the judge.

"Every year (well, maybe not every year) my child asks me the same question. After thinking about it, I decided I'd give her my real answer:
What do I want for Mother's Day?
I want you. I want you to keep coming around, I want you to bring your friends around, I want you to ask me questions, ask my advice, tell me your problems, ask for my opinion, ask for my help. I want you to come over and rant about your problems, rant about life, whatever. Tell me about school, your job, your worries, your friends. I want you to continue sharing your life with me. Come over and laugh with me, or laugh at me, I don't care. Hearing you laugh is music to me.
I spent the better part of my life raising you the best way I know how. Now, give me time to sit back and admire my work.
Raid the refrigerator, help yourself, I really don't mind. In fact, I wouldn't want it any other way.
I want you to spend your money making a better life for you , I have the things I need. I want to see you happy and healthy. When you ask me what I want for Mother's Day, I say "nothing" because you've already been giving me my gift all year. I want you.❤️❤️
