Mother’s Day


Today is the first Mother’s Day without my Mom.  To say it feels strange is somewhat of an understatement.

My Mom and I didn’t see eye to eye most of the time (I’m 5’10”, she was 4’6”), but we still loved each other no matter what our differences on various issues were.

For those of you whose Mothers are still alive, treasure them and tell them you love them.

For those whose Mothers are not with us, take a few moments and think of the wonderful times that you had together.

Doing either of the above honors your Mother, and shows the love and respect that they deserve.

Happy Mother’s Day.

    I have no problem sympathizing with your loss and echoing your thoughts about Mother’s Day. This is only the second Mother’s Day without Mom and I haven’t been able to get her out of my mind for several days.

  2. I added a post a little after you posted this one Tom, and I had checked to see if you had added one, but hadn’t. But you did when I did finally. I myself do not know what you feel because my mom is still alive, but my dad is gone. *something of the same, as the first fathers day after he was gone was weird. But she is still there with you in spirit sir, and looking down from Heaven and smiling with love for you. I know thoughts like that will get me through my first years without my mom when she dies.

    LD – The memories are our way of keeping our loved ones close.

    Robert – Dad is still around and in relatively good health.

    Thank you both for your kind words.
