This is a short post. I just want to wish everyone a very happy Mother’s Day! I’m sending this message out to everyone, even those of us who are not mothers, because today is a chance for all of us to think about the wonderful impact that mothers have on our lives. Mothers are everywhere and we love them! Even the non human ones.
As most of you know, this is my first Mother’s Day after my mom passed last summer. And it’s really hard. But I’ll get through it by focusing on how much her life has impacted mine and how appreciative I am that I’m here today because of her. Also, my brother sent me the most adorable pics of my mother’s garden in her back yard. My mother’s garden was her pride and joy and its thriving even after she’s gone. Her influence is still visible and inspiring. What more could a daughter ask for?
So I’m encouraging everyone to celebrate your mama today. Whether she’s no longer with us, whether you’re sitting with her right now, or whether you’re not speaking to her, remember that you are here because of her. And because of that simple fact alone, the world is better place because of her.
If you’re up to it, please leave a comment below sharing your thoughts about Mother’s Day.
