Mother's Day...

It will be Mothers Day in less than an hour.  I'd like to wish all the mothers out there a relaxing, joyous day.

My mom's been gone for many years.  She passed away a week and a half before Christmas when I was 12.  Even though I'm in my 50s now, I still miss her.  I especially missed her during all the landmarks in my life--graduations, getting married and having children. However, I do have this happy fantasy about her.  I imagine her sitting in heaven with all our other deceased relatives sipping on a cup of coffee and looking down at me cheering me on when times are tough, smiling when times are good and looking after my sons now that they're grown and on their own.  Happy Mothers Day Mom!

  1. I hope you had a Good Mothers Day. My mom passed when I was 7 and I really did miss her alot in my milestones also, I still do miss her so much..I loved your post thanks for sharing, Im so sorry you mother passed close to Christmas, hugs

  2. I can hardly imagine how awful to lose your mother at 7 was! My sister was 6 and she doesn't remember ours. The happy memories help a lot. Learning to be a mom myself was a bit of a challenge but I think I did ok :). I'm sure you did too. Hope your mother's day was great.
