I know I’m a lucky one. I still have my mom, and I also have an amazing grandmother and a pretty awesome mother-in-law and a sister-in-law who is celebrating her first mother’s day today.
And I try to not take that for granted.
After some scary things happened with my mom a few years ago, I know how fast things can change.
I want every day that I spend with them to be filled with love, and I try my best to absorb every moment we have together. Good or bad, I want to remember those memories and store them away in the depths of my heart and mind.
Take some time today to celebrate your mom – in presence or in thought. And if you aren’t with your own mom today, share some love with someone you know that is a mom or has a mom or lost a mom or wants to be a mom. It’s never possible to give too much love.
