Happy Mother's Day

Today is the day we celebrate our mothers, grandmothers, aunties, and other maternal figures who have nurtured and cared for us over the years. This year I miss my mother more than ever. I miss her wisdom to know what to do in difficult situations, her comforting hugs which made my tears disappear when I was sad or hurt, her reassuring words that would make me feel safe at all times, her encouragement which made me feel I could conquer the world and most of all, her unconditional love - no matter what. I've been looking through old photo albums trying to channel these attributes of hers ~ now when I need them the most. But I know she is with me all the time, like an angel watching over me. Happy Mother's Day to you Mama!

That was lovely...and sad. You need and miss your mother forever when she is gone. I have been without mine for thirty-two years now and I still wish she were around. She has left me with a lot of memories and I sometimes see her in my a her smile...the shape of her face. They are always with us.

Your Mom sounds very much like mine. How hard this day is without them, but how good that we continue to celebrate the amazing women that they were, and will always be!

Ah Jeanne, what a beautiful tribute to your Mom.
I'm thinking of you, and sending you hugs. I wish I could give you a hug in person, but know I'm thinking of you often!
