happy mother's day
mother's day and i have a love-hate relationship...
i love the excitement and engery from the boys. i love the looks on their faces when they get to help make breakfast and give me their gifts. i love their joy at selecting flowers at the plant sale to give to their grandma and 2 great grandmas.
but, even with all of the joy my boys bring...deep down...this day is so difficult.
i miss her so much.
i miss her smile, her laughter, the way you knew what she was thinking by looking at her eyes.
she was my best friend.
and on this day, when we are to celebrate with our mothers...i visit a cemetery.
i remember the first year like it was yesterday, not 12 years ago. that's when tom and i started the tradition of taking flowers from our yard.
everyday people say goodbye to their moms, but when it is your mom...it is completely different. there are some moments in life, when i miss her more than others. lately, i've been really wishing i could just have one more conversation with her.
so...on this day, if your mom is still with you, please hug her tight and enjoy each and every moment of this mother's day with her. and if your mom has gone on to greater adventures, may peace and love surround you today.
