Happy Mothers Day from A Lot On Your Plate!

Happy Mother's Day!

I just wanted to use today’s post to thank all the wonderful mothers & grandmothers in the world for giving 100% to their families on a daily basis;  To the women who had to sacrifice for their family’s, who work as hard as they possibly can, the ones that keep calm & carry on, even when times get tough, and to the fathers who may have to play the mom role as well, your hard work and dedication to your family is truly appreciated.

You are all so inspiring to me and without you, this blog wouldn’t be possible.

So, please be sure to use today as a day to honor and express appreciation for your mothers, grandmothers, & mother figures in your life, who inspire and push you to be the best they know you can be.  Always be grateful for them, as they are for you.

Have a healthy & happy Mother’s Day!
