I find Mother's Day to be hard.
my mom died.
And it still hurts my heart.
I am married to a man who loves me dearly but doesn't much understand celebration.
It was even hard for a long time to let my kids do for ME.... because this day used to make me so unhappy.
So Mothers Day was a day I tried to just get through.
the day I discovered the JOY
of celebrating other mothers.
I have some women in my mom's generation that have mothered me as well.... I began to send them cards.
My daughters have become mothers... so I have an opportunity to share with them how proud I am of the nurturing women they have become.
I have friends who have nurtured me in different ways that I can show appreciation to.
So.... okay.. I DO have a mother
the BEST mother out of this world
and the best I can do for HER...
is to share that love I can't show her
with others I care about.
[Of course I have to add that since I wrote this.... Mr. Wonderful has asked me to go away for the weekend.... so those extra cards just might be late. I am a lucky woman indeed]
