Mother's Day

Saturday, May 11, 2013

Well, tomorrow is Mother's Day.

I have 2 children and 2 grandchildren. I love them fiercely and am very happy they will be spending the day with me. However, I still miss being with my mom on this day.

My mother passed away about 20 years ago. I never realized what an impact she had on me until she was longer here. 20 years and I still miss her.

It breaks my heart that she never had a chance to see my daughter get married, know her grandchildren and they her.

My son is my oldest. She thought the world of him and then some I would tell her people must cross the street so as not to see pictures of him and hear about him. Then I became a grandmother and knew exactly how she felt. Among so many other things, she showed me how to be a grandmother. She showed me how be a mother-in-law and most importantly how to be a mother.

She had such an influence on me - from returning library books on time - to telling me that one of the most important things I could do for my children was to give them their independence.

I miss and love you mom.

    I posted a picture of my Mom on Facebook this morning. This is her first Mother's Day in Heaven. I miss her so much.
