Mother’s Day has rolled around again, our 7th one without her. In years past I’ve been pretty successful at ignoring the day, averting my eyes when going by the card section at the grocery store, turning the channel when an advertisement comes on the television.
This year it doesn’t seem to be such a painful day, and I can feel happy for other people and other mothers. Sure I still miss my own, but I can appreciate the day for what it is, a celebration of women everywhere. And I recognize how very lucky we were to have the Mom we did for as long as we did.
So Happy Mother’s Day to you all of you! I hope it’s all sunshine and happy moments – enjoy your day!
