Today’s the day we commemorate our mothers and acknowledge all they do, or have done, for us, and how they made us the unique person we are today. You don’t think you got to this point in your life stumbling along on your very own did you? I have no siblings, nor any family members living, so there is no one I can share funny or special stories with today, but, even though this is the sixth Mother’s Day since I lost my mom, I carry many memories of her presence on Earth in my heart and am reminded of her every single day. I am thankful for the time that I spent with her. The many pictures that fill the family albums, or are displayed in frames around the house, as well as mental pictures tucked away in my mind, all help to keep her memory alive. Accompanying today’s blog post is a three-generation photograph that my grandmother, mom and I had taken at a photo studio when my grandmother was visiting us in 1983.
If you are a mother, may your day be just as special as you are.
A mom is a blessing sent from Heaven above, a huggable reminder of God’s unfailing love. ~ Anonymous
