Mother's Day will be hard for all of us. I am feeling sad for all the motherless sons and daughters out there. Mothers Day for me is a memory of the beautiful woman who took me where I am today. All that I am, I am because of her. All that I have, I have because of her. She is in everything I do. The memories of her are part of my being, my soul, my heart. On this special day when we honor our dear mothers let us give thanks for the wonderful gift that God has bestowed on us, the loving and caring mothers that we called our own. Let us pray that we can carry on without them always knowing that they are with us. I know that they would want us to go on and be strong. I lost my beautiful mother on January 8, 2011 and this will be my first Mother's Day in 59 years as a motherless daughter. I miss you so much mom. I see you everywhere I go. We are one and someday we will have our tea and cookies together again. I hope your special day in heaven is beautiful and that you are celebrating with all the other dear mothers who have left their sons and daughters here on earth. I love you mom. Happy Mother's Day to you and to all of your heavenly sisters who were also called "Mom".
This is my first Mother's Day without my mom and it SUCKS. (Had to just be blunt.) She died 3 weeks ago today and it still feels like I'm walking through quicksand. This is just another one of those days where I want to crawl back in bed, hide under the covers and pretend it's tomorrow.
