Mothers' Day

Mothers' Day.... feels like a kick in my already hurting heart. They whole point of the holiday is to get you to think about, and appreciate, your mom. My mom was wonderful. We were friends. Good friends. She was the model of what a mother should be. And she's gone. And I appreciated her.

Every time I turn on the TV this week there are commercials about moms. In the mall: helpful signs with ideas of what to get your mom. The grocery store? Mom. Newspaper? Mom. Internet? Mom. Inbox of my email? Mom.

I was lucky that I had a mom who cooked dinner for me every night when I was growing up, she took picture-taking adventure days with me, we emailed while I was in college every day, we hiked together, shared recipes together, talked every day about our what was going on in our lives.... My mom was so great. 

I miss my mom, and some days I still cry, but this weekend, the weekend that's to remind people about your moms? It was never for me. I know that I always appreciated my mom. She was amazing and I knew it.

So please, if you have a mom, realize what a gift that is. Remember to tell your mom every day of the year that you appreciate all that she's done for you.

I have been missing mine too. I want so badly to show her my crochet projects... She was a master at crochet.

Great photos that you posted. I can't imagine losing my mom. Just can't! Your mom is with you. She is. You're so strong for going through this.

Just wanted to let you know your mom touched so, so many lives, including mine as I worked at MCC under her. She was an amazing woman and I was proud to know her!

I'm sorry I haven't been by, especially on a day like this one. Its hard when you know you appreciated what you were given with your mom, loved her with all of your heart, but she's just not here anymore. :( Hugs.
