Most of us probably have a special Mother’s Day that we hold on to.
Mine was when we lived in Phoenix. My son was about 2 and my daughter maybe 4…I think. My husband was on a business trip.
My two dear children came into my bedroom carrying a tray. They had one piece of burned toast on a large plate. The coffee cup was filled to the brim with cold water. Coffee grounds were floating while Lauren proudly explained that she had made me a good cup of coffee. Both children were proud of their accomplishment. My heart filled to capacity and then some. It still does to this day when I remember this special Mother’s Day.
Tomorrow is for all Mothers in all forms, all colors, all everything. A day to remember Mothers who have passed and are no longer here to hug and give us guidance. Missed beyond words. Mothers in name only, Mothers who are yet to be and Mothers in the thick of it. Young and Old.
So, we thank our Mothers, but we don’t have to think long about all ‘we’ have done to deserve this special day. Humbly I say.
I am reminded once again how it all began…this thing they call motherhood. In my case, there was a lot of pushing involved without meds both times, and, in return, I have a nice homemade yummy breakfast once a year if I am very lucky! Pushing…..pushing, b r e a t h i n g in and out, more pushing until insides feel like they are coming out along with a beautiful baby! TMI?? Yes, perhaps. Yay for us! All that work and a good breakfast besides. Perfect.
It has been a ride and a lifetime of love, pain, love, guidance, hospital runs, love, worry, tears, heartbreak, love and maybe the best breakfasts one can only dream of!
Happy Mother’s Day everyone! Enjoy!! I, personally, wouldn’t trade any of it… for anything. Except, perhaps, for the best dinner in the world! Wait for it….my children are taking me out to dinner tonight. Just the three of us. What is better than that I ask you?
I am so excited!!
Love and Miss Both My Moms,
