With Mother’s Day coming and Mom’s birthday passing a couple of months back she has been on my mind a lot lately. I’m not sure it is because she will be gone for 17 years come this September or if she would have been celebrating her 84 birthday this past March or then it again it could be that it is just another Mother’s Day without her. But either way she is indeed on my mind. I suppose here lately she has been there a lot.
But anyone who has a Mom whether she still be here with us or has gone to live in heaven this time of year our Mom’s are in our thoughts because of May and us celebrating Mother’s Day all over the world. It was started in the early 20th century when Anna Jarvis wanted to honor all Mothers and motherhood. While not all countries celebrate Mother’s Day it is hosted in about forty countries around the world.
In retrospect you really only have one Mother and it is nice to let her know how special she is to you and to thank her for all the things she has taught, her unconditional love and most of life she as given you. She is the light at the end of your tunnel when you just want that much needed hug or a kiss on the forehead when you’re not feeling your best. Sometimes we get lucky and we have a Mom would is always there through thick and thin.
Motherhood is an honorable job and for those of have it is a wonderful and sometimes trying occupation but it is also a very loving one. At times it can be routine but never boring, it can even be thankless at times when you are at your wits end but there is always love and you often wonder if your children are on the same page as you but you know beyond a doubt in your mind that you would NEVER change a thing because changing one thing would change it all.
So Mom I want to thank you for all you did my brothers and sisters I know that you loved us. I also want to say that there a day doesn’t pass by that I don’t want to pick up the phone to call you to tell you something or ask you a question about something but most importantly just to say I love you, I miss you but most of all thank you for all the years you were there to raise me and care for me.
HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY TO ALL YOU MOMS OUT THERE IN CYBERSPACE May you all have a wonderful day and I hope that your children remembers to tell you!!!!
