The role that a mother can play in her child’s life is tremendous and since it’s Mother’s Day, I wanted to devote another post to the most important women in our lives – our mothers.  Mothers truly do have such a profound affect on our lives and who we turn out to be in life (and even how we parent our own children).  Some mothers have good influence on their children’s growth while we know that some do not.  It is true that not all people are born to be good parents and some, unfortunately have lived up to that stereotype.  For those of us that have had a positive influence from our mothers – even in a small way – it has effect us and shaped who we are.  That is why today (even though I am far away from my own mother) I wanted to share the best 3 ways to thank your mother today and on all the other 364 days in the year.

So, here are the Best 3…Ways to Thank Your Mom:

1.  Go and see her – spend time with her…and let her know you love and cherish her

2.  Talk to her (if you are not in the same place) – don’t let your life take over and forget to call – make the time (that is my own personal lesson)

3.  Surprise her with random things (not just gifts) but a walk, going to the movies, going shoe shopping together, visiting a museum etc. – this just let’s her know that you are thinking about her and that you care and enjoy her company!

To all the mother’s out there – Happy Mother’s Day

In honor of Mother’s Day, I thought that it would be nice to pay tribute to all the mothers out there in the world and write about the best things about moms and the role that they play in our lives.  I am a fortunate daughter who has the most amazing, wonderful and beautiful mother.  She is a strong woman (more than she even realizes) who can handle all that life has thrown at her. She doesn’t dwell on the bad but looks to the good.  She stands tall (even though she is only 5″ feet tall), fights for what she believes in and loves her husband and her children unconditionally.  I am truly lucky and blessed that she is my mother (and I know my siblings would echo my thoughts).

So, here are the Best 3…Things about Moms:

1.  They love us unconditionally

2.  As we grow older, they aren’t just our mother but become our friend

3.  They give the best hugs

I think that these pretty much sum up only three of the best things about moms.  There are so many more.

Happy Mother’s Day!

One of the uninhabited islands of Lakshadweep

Today I was in a workshop and one of the exercises that the facilitator directed us to do was determine the top five things we would take to a desert island (for some context, this since may people had different things in their top five …there was a lot more to it but I won’t bore you with that).  However this exercise got me thinking about what would be the best 3 things that I would bring to a desert island.  For me, there was an infinite amount of possibilities and in this case my best 3 list was generated by ranking the best things that I would bring with me to ensure that my desert island experience was the best possible one I could have.

So, here are the Best 3…Things I would bring to a desert island:

1.  Books

2.  A man

3.  Infinite supply of food and water

Some people might find it funny that I chose books as the number one best pick but for me, I love to read and this just seemed like a natural choice.  If I am going to be there for a long time, what better way to pass the time but to lounge and read.  These books will be the gateway to other worlds, to feelings, to adventures and so many other things…it is endless and frankly just the best way to spend my time.

My second best pick was for pure selfish reasons.  Hey, if a girl is on a desert island she needs some companionship and to be honest: sex.  Plus, you need someone to interact with.  We all remember the Tom Hank‘s movie Cast Away where his best friend was a volleyball called Wilson, well I wouldn’t want to end up like that.  If I am on a desert island, I want to live it up.

As for my third best pick, this would have to be food and water.  These are elements that are essential to survival and wouldn’t allow me to enjoy the books or the man.  Plus if there was always an infinite amount of food and water, it would save from having to always go looking for it.

Hello and welcome to my blog.  My Best 3 of Everything blog was started to share what I personally believe to be the best three things of everything out there in the world.  There will be no limits to what I rank.  The possibilities are endless.  Everything from best three cereals to best three books to read on a beach.  There won’t be anything out there that will remain unranked.   My best three of everything list will always be the first thing you read but I will also explain why I chose those 3 particular items, people, places, things, etc as the best.  There may also be times when I will hand out some close runner-ups or honorable mentions.

These list are meant to be fun (with no harm intended) yet I know that there is the possibility for debate on my choices and that is indeed welcomed.  I want to hear what others might have chosen.

I hope you enjoy…
