Happy Mother's Day!
Sunday, May 13, 2007
I expected it to be tough. I have been preparing myself to feel sad, lonely, left out, upset. Instead I sit here feeling blessed. I spent the last 32 years with my mom and I am very grateful to have had that time with her. I miss her immensely every day but as I look around at the women in my life, I realize that I still have moms in my life. I have moms-to-be, I have new moms, stepmoms, well-seasoned moms, grandmothers, aunts, sisters. Today is about celebrating the sacrifices a women makes to bring up her children in this rough and tumble world. I salute all you moms out there. And I thank you for the things you do not only for your own children but for all the people in your lives. :)
