When I woke this morning, I knew it was going to be a great day!! I had cards waiting for me and I was being offered breakfast and everyone was all smiles. We had to head of to church though, so not all of it came to be. I did get to see Miss K as alter server though today. Ah yes, that’s what today is all about!!
Becoming a mom is the best thing that ever happened to me. For the longest time I wondered if Mother’s Day would even apply to me. It was ssoooo worth the wait though. Miss K is a true blessing and has enriched my life in so many ways. She’s yet another part of what forms me to be the person that I am.
The other main part of me being who I am is my own mother. Boy, we’ve had some battles. We’re very different people and I didn’t always want the same things that she did. She was a strong women in her own right. She had her own opinions and was very down-to-earth and at times, old fashioned. Today I realize that she’s just a simple person. She wants very little, but gives so very much. Back in March, she gave me a scare but I know that I was there for a reason. I’ve never doubted that. I guess for me, it was a dose of reality. I’ve known for a long time that one day, my dad will go. That day, I realized that mom will too. I guess I just sort of expected her to hang around and be who she is forever!! I can’t help but think about the small wars that mom and I had sometimes. I can’t help it because I’m having them with my own daughter now!! Life truly does come full circle. It’s all so much easier though when you have a mom like mine. NO MATTER WHAT, she’s there for you. Sometimes, I swear she’s taking me by the hand and other times, I feel like I’m stumbling badly. I know that’s ok though because she’s helped to form me into the person that I am and especially the mom that I am. Things will just turn out the way they’re supposed to because life really is that simple, just like mom always knew. So now, I’ve learned to take a little and hopefully, I’m giving alot back!!
To my mother…..
And to all my lady friends and family that read this….
HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!!
