Remembering on Mother's Day
Saturday, May 13, 2017
"Even as a small child, I understood that women had secrets, and that some of these were only to be told to daughters. In this way we were bound together for eternity."
My mother passed away in 1992 of breast cancer. I have looked back many times, through the years, and regretted not appreciating her more than I did when I was young. However, having two grown daughters of my own, I understand that this is common. My mother was religious and strict. She was the disciplinarian. My father was the easy going parent.
As I have reached 62, I do know that as much as I hated the spankings, the conflicts... I cannot change the past. I can only accept the way it was. But I do know that being a mother is the hardest job I have found.
Do you reflect on memories of Mother's Days in past? If so, do you ever imagine the memories that our children will have of us in future years?
"I will never forget the moment your heart stopped and mine kept beating."
I hope that you all have a special mother, step mother or grandmother and enjoy your weekend.
