I am so blessed to have my Mother still with me. I can't imagine the day she won't be.....hoping that day never comes!
When I've had a bad day, or week, or month....I always know who I can call! She will listen and sometimes, if I'm ready to listen, will have some good advice to my dilemma, hardship or heartache. No matter what....she's always been there. She's ready to jump at a moments notice, no matter how inconvenient it might be for her, to be there for her children....and grandchildren.
She's my Mom.....and my friend.
Like friends, we can have disagreements, but they always are resolved and come back to the love and appreciation we have for each other. Forgiveness is always present.....no matter what.
It's a wonderful Mother to have such as this.
I am truly blessed with a great Mom....and Dad and Sisters.
My family isn't perfect......but it's an awesome one!! :-)
Make sure to tell your Moms how much they are loved and appreciated.....and try not to ever hold grudges. Just forgive, let go of it.....and go on. Focus on what's important in this life. We have a short time here on this earth.....lets enjoy our families while we have them with us!
Families come in many shapes and sizes.....Step-Mother's, Mother-in-Laws, God-Mothers, even ex Mother-in Laws.....many women may have crossed your path through your life and hold an important place in your heart. Don't forget to tell them this Sunday! :-)
This is my 'Mother's Day' card this year.....always late, but much time put into them! :-)
