Last year I wrote about my mother and how difficult Mother’s Day can be for those of us who have lost their mom’s. We have our memories and we also yearn to have our mother’s back with us. Here is the post if you missed it or would like to read it again. Click below on the link “I Miss Mom Today. Everyday” to read this post.
I have memories as a child of spending every Mother’s Day with both of my grandmother’s as well. I would pick some lilacs which were just beginning to bloom and come back to the house excited to see them.
With all these women gone, our Mother’s Day celebration is small, with my boys and my husband and we have over the years started our own tradition.
This year, as I was going through my things and getting organized I found a Mother’s Day gift that my boys both gave me (each when they were in Kindergarten) that I thought would be fun to share.
Old memories, new traditions….
“Grown don’t mean nothing to a mother. A child is a child. They get bigger, older, but grown. In my heart it don’t mean a thing.” – Toni Morrison
Motherhood has been incredibly joyful, inspiring and challenging and I can’t imagine my life any other way. On this Mother’s Day, I reflect, appreciate and embrace what is to come.
