I won't be spending Mother's Day with my children - all grown up now - with lives of their own - and so away. I will be in church thinking of them as well. I will see the mom's sitting with their children who came to church just to be with them. I will see the beautiful corsages they, too, are wearing - and I know I will shed a few tears. My son is working in North Dakota - and I know he will call me. I will miss him. My daughter sent me a special framed photo of my grandson and a homemade card with his hand print. She is a mom, too. I will cherish them but I miss her.
Mother's Day is the hardest day for me in church. They ask us all to stand - every one looks around at all the mothers - and you will see so many with their children - young and grown - standing beside them. Then I will see I am not alone - there are others who will shed tears - some estranged from their children because of arguments, some whose children have passed away - and I am thankful that mine are healthy, happy and just away from me because of life circumstances - and my mother is alive and well and I will see her soon. We will have 2 weeks to spend together this summer. Yes, I am thankful.
I love my mother and I love my daughter and I want to say Happy Mothers Day, Mom - Happy Mothers Day, Robin. I miss you both.
Flowers from my sweet hubby.
