So this Mother’s day is a little hard for me…. Mom passed away about a year and a half ago… kind of suddenly… I’m not going to dwell on that though… I want to just say how thankful I am that we got to spend time together until she was almost 81! This photo was taken at her 80th birthday party! So, so glad we planned this for her! I’m so glad we traveled together… so glad we were lucky enough to have her in our lives while my children were old enough to know her….
For those of you who don’t have your moms around anymore…. I feel your loss! It’s a club you don’t want to belong to. I truly believe our mom’s are looking over us!
For those of you who still have your mom, even if she annoys you sometimes, tell her you love her every day.. because the next day, could be the last.
Not all moms are perfect… but they do the best they can. I hope your mom is perfect…. but in case she isn’t…. KNOW that she loves you! A mother’s love is unconditional… and hindsight is 20/20. I wish I knew the things I know now.. but isn’t that always the case…
So all this to say…. I hope you have a VERY happy Mother’s day celebrating YOU, your mother, your mother in law…. and ANY woman who has been LIKE A MOM to you!
The bottom line is “it takes a village” and moms have had a great influence over who we are and who we have become. Be thankful for what you have learned from that “mom figure” and have made you who you are today!
Happy Mother’s Day!
