Happy Mother’s Day

Filed under: Uncategorized — Debs @ 7:37 am

This last year without Mom has been one of alot of reflection and memories.  The pain is easing and giving way to what she really wanted, for me to keep living life.

It’s taken awhile to go through her things, the hardest being her clothes, especially the ones with her perfume.  Some still had tags on them, she was “saving” them for a special occasion.  Mom always planned ahead, even if she didn’t know what exactly she was planning for….  but she always taught me to live in the “now”.

Mom used to tell me that there are two days a week, that  I should never worry about.  One is yesterday… with all of it’s mistakes faults, and blunders.  It’s gone, and beyond our control, we can’t undo the things that may not have been done… it’s gone.

The other day is tomorrow.  There may be adversity, and it is always full of promise.  The sun will still rise either in a bright blue sky, or behind the clouds…. but until it does, there really is nothing to worry about there either..

So that leaves today.  Anyone can handle, today.  It is when we begin to add the burden of yesterday or the uncertainty of tomorrow that things can become overwhelming.  So today, I will celebrate Mom, and the fact that I have two wonderful young men that call me Mom.   I believe Mom is still leading, guiding, loving all of us…  today.

This was one of her favorite songs…. Happy Mother’s Day!



  1. I was very spoiled by both my boys… the one who lives here and his wife, her family, my sister and her family and my father all had a wonderful day together. My younger son who is stationed at Fort Polk called every hour 1/2 or so to make sure my older son was doing everything right LOL… Very good day! 🙂

  2. Hope that Mother’s Day let you experience again the love you shared with your mother. Hope you and your family shared that love together as well, and maybe for at least for one day they let you slack and rest. 🙂
