Remembering Moms

Wishing all you Moms 
and women who are special to a child, 
a very
Happy Mother's Day!

This weekend we honor mothers and women who are important in our lives. If you have a mom, grandma, aunt, or woman in your life, grab her and give her a big hug and kiss.

My mother above and my mother-in-law below.
 I miss them.
Today I recall all the times my mother and I shared shopping, eating, wedding planning, births of our daughters, trips, talking, and so much more. Memories are powerful to keep your loved one's spirit with you.

On this Mother's Day weekend I remember my mother-in-law, a loving. caring woman. She was kind and thoughtful to me and gave the best hugs ever! She was taken too soon from this earth by cancer. 

Although these women are gone physically from my life, I can still feel their warmth around me every day and see them in the faces of my children and grandchildren. 

I was blessed to have them in my life.

I miss my mum every day, but Mother's Day is particularly hard. I hope wherever she is, she knows how much I appreciated her.

Happy Mother's Day, Janet.

Happy Mother's Day, darlin'! Your few powerful words nailed it perfectly -- yes, we see those who've gone before in our children. And our grandchildren will see us in their children. Beautiful thing, this thing called life, isn't it? Love you!
