Mothers Day is this Sunday! Even though I’m not a mother and I no longer have my mom I still celebrate with others who are! Some friends would argue that I AM a MOM… at least to Princy (my sweet little weenie-wawa) and Liz (my precious short hair black cat with the most GORGEOUS aqua eyes). I do love my girls, in fact I always call our home a “girly girl home”…. There are three of us! I guess I am a mom!
For me, Mother’s Day always meant flying home to Kansas to be with my mom for a long weekend. We always loved our time being together and it didn’t matter what we did. Often times, she’d take me shopping but for the most part, we just sat and talked about everything under the sun. I know that the Mother’s Day trip always made her feel extra special and just for her.
My mom was diagnosed with lung cancer during Holy Week three years ago and went to heaven just 3 months, 3 weeks later. I still can’t believe she’s gone but I thank God she doesn’t have to suffer anymore. I also thank God for HER every single day. She was the most selfless person I’ve ever known…always willing to give you the shirt off her back and never with judgment or ridicule. My brother and I couldn’t do ANYTHING wrong, at least in her eyes!!!! WOW, if she only knew! HA! No matter what we were going thru in life she was always there to help, listen, pray. She was THE MOST ACCEPTING person I’ve ever known.
If I let myself, I can get really sad every time I pick up my phone to call her. There are so many things I’d like to share with her and just simply talk about. I would love to see those big beautiful green eyes of hers. BUT, even though she’s no longer on this earth, I know she’s with me in spirit. I’m so very thankful that she was a believer,and I’m certain with all my heart she’s in heaven with God forever where Mother’s Day is every day!!!
