It is our special Sunday for being a mother. Please take time out of your day to make a phone call, make a short visit if possible, let them know that you care. You never know when they will no longer be with us and then you wish you had gone more often to see them.
My mother and mother-in-law are both deceased, but I still think of them and the things that they have taught me. Some things I wish that I had paid more attention to, but didn't. My mom was there for all of us kids and our friends as we were growing up. Always a house full of kids.
Those precious moments of watching my children grow into adults with their own children. My daughter celebrating her 20th anniversary of working for the same company yesterday. They had lunch then dairy queen ice cream cake. I asked her if it seemed like it was 20 years,she said no, but it is. She started right after she graduated from college with her brand new truck that we co-signed for her. Our banker loaned her the money and wished her luck with her new job. Now days you wouldn't be able to get a loan that easy. Small banks are a lot different then the big banks where you feel like you are only a number.
The wonderful feeling of knowing that all three have their college degrees makes you have that wonderful feeling when you look at their accomplishments. You watch them raising their children showing them that they need to work to accomplish their dreams. Just telling them that they need to do the job to the best of their ability. It is amazing what they can do if they really want to do so.
We had some crazy weather this week and I have been missing. Just to many things right now and not enough hours in the day. I have missed all of you and enjoy every one of your visits to my rambling. Have a beautiful day tomorrow. I am not sure what my day will bring, but I will be visiting the nursing home. I have been spending more time there making sure that all of the doctor's orders are being done.
Happy Mother's Day and enjoy your weekend. Ours is sun shining so far. Take care.
