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