A Mother’s Day Wish

The sun is playing peek-a-boo behind the clouds today, but it is Mother’s Day and sunshine is not needed for me to feel loved and very blessed!

My son headed back home to Arizona two weeks ago after spending the winter months with us, so we celebrated Mother’s Day early this year. I loved having both grown children at home with me for a while . . . something that is a rare occurrence since they both lead such busy lives.

Today will be all about celebrating my mom, whom I love so very much! It doesn’t matter to me that her memory is failing and that we can no longer reminisce about days gone by. I just love seeing her smile and hearing her laugh as she listens to our stories and looks through old photo albums. Every now and then there is a glimmer of recognition and we are able to have a short conversation.  I will always be grateful that God has blessed me with a lifetime of memories and the ability to make many more. That is the best gift I could receive today!

Wishing you a Mother’s Day full of precious memories, both new and old.
