Mothers Day 2009


This was the first Mother's Day without my Dear Mom and I sorely missed her. But I know I'm not alone in feeling like there's an emptiness in my heart. I was reminded by our Pastor that for many-- Mother's Day can be a sad day. I know there are many others who have felt a similar burden today. There are many Mother's that have lost their children. I am fortunate to still have my two sons, a wonderful daughter-in-law and an awesome grandson. There are Mothers who are worried every day about their children that are actively serving in our Military in harms way and cannot see them today or tomorrow (I know some them). There are many who want to be Mothers and cannot. There are some children who are sad because their Mom's just weren't good Moms. My Mom was a great Mom. I still don't know how she raised the 5 of us and kept such vigor! Yes, I truly miss my Dear Mom but I know some day I will see her again and that I am blessed every day because of her.
Take care-
Debbie

My husband took this picture outside the front of our house tonight. What a beautiful sunset!

I understand everything - and only time will heal the edges of this deep void in your life. I'm here anytime you need a friend ♥

Aren't church steeples wonderful signs of hope? I always look for them when we are riding - and they always seem to have the picture perfect setting. This photo is no exception either!

love you buddy

Thank you Cookie. You're a true Gem. :) This church is still under construction and we were so excited when they put the steeple on a couple of weeks ago. I love looking for them on trips, too. ~Deb

Hi Deb,
I thought I'd make my rounds today and visit some of the blogs.

It sure made me sad to read how much you miss your Beautiful Mother
but, it made me smile to read how
wonderful she was.

Hugs Dear Sister,
Audrey

aww.. this was my second one without my mom, so far it hasn't gotten easier, but I guess that just means they left a wonderful impression on our hearts! hugs, robin
