Happy Mother's Day

Mother's Day is a day we set aside to honor all Mother's for the special love that only they can give.
My Mom passed over into Heaven almost 7 years ago and although I know that I am suppose to take comfort in knowing that she is in a better place and is no longer in pain, I am having a very hard time finding that comfort this year for some reason.
My Mom was not only my Mother, she was my best friend. We lived next door to each other and after her retirement, we spent every day together. Every day she would pop into my kitchen and say, "It's break time", and we would sit and chat. In the warmer months we sat at my pond everyday and watched the birds and squirrels play. We shopped together, went to rummage sales almost every week and we ate lunch together at least three times a week. She loved the fried chicken salad and rolls at O Charlie's. And try as hard as I can, I cannot adjust to my Mom not being here to do these things with me. My kids try to fill in the gap and I am so lucky to have them love me that much. But hard as they try, they can't relpace my Mom.
So if you are lucky enough to still have your Mom, make tommorrow a very special day for her and let her know just how much she means to you. Give her a big hug and cherish the time you spend together.
I want to wish each and every Mother a very Happy Mother's Day this year. God bless each and every one of you.

This is a lovely tribute to your Mom, Valerie. Although it is so painful losing a Mom, how unbelievably lucky you are (I am too) to have so many wonderful memories to cherish. They are yours to savor over and over in the years to come, bringing her to your side each and every time. Through your Mother's love you have learned the true meaning of Motherhood and have shared the same experiences with your daughters. I know, I have chatted with Laura and the bond is so strong and special with your family...that isn't just by chance. Although not with you physically, your Mom is in you and part of who you are. Love surpasses all boundaries. What a gift she has given to you! Happy Mother's Day, my special friend. xo
