This ‘Mother's Day’ weekend, I’ve been busy going here and there, cooking this and that. It’s been a thoroughly enjoyable time – so my post this week is rather short and sweet.
Today is Mother's Day. Twenty nine years ago (almost thirty, actually), my mother went through a whole lotta pain and effort to get me here safely. Two years ago (almost), my mother went out of her way so I could recover from surgery and prepare for chemotherapy, visiting England for over a month and living in our tiny one bedroom apartment with me and my husband. There have been some uncomfortable times. But goodness knows she’s helped to keep me safe over and over.
For all the mothers, whatever your situation at this moment, I hope you’re surrounded by those who love you most – and just know that you have been an achor in their lives. Someone who gives care, even when exhausted . . . someone who makes time, even when so busy . . . someone who deserves love, even when you're grumpy.
Happy Mother's Day everyone.
