In Honor Of Mother's Day...

This is always a really hard day for me. In fact, for several weeks prior, it's always a really rough time because I'm inundated with advertisements for Mother's Day presents. I really wish there was some way to turn those ads off because it's hard enough without her, but Mother's Day is particularly painful because I wish with all my heart she was still here.

This year has been particularly hard because I realized how much my mom would love all this. She would be my little cheerleader and she would never let me give up. I was very lucky to have her as long as I did. Every day at the end, I never took a day for granted and I treasured every moment we did have.

So in honor of Mother's Day, I just want to thank my mom for everything she did for me. One of the last conversations I had with her was he asking me if she had been a good mother to me. She said she waited to have me because she was so scared she would screw up being a mom. I told her I couldn't imagine a better mom than her.

I miss you, Mom.

  2. Lori, your post brought tears to my eyes. My mom passed 3 years this past March. In the mid-50's, my father used to augment our allowance at Mother's Day. My brother and I would then go shopping for mom.Late 50's, we progressed from perfume and nylons to slips. Later on, flowers were the order of the day. Lily Of The Valley.
