Happy Mother's Day

It's nice that there has been a day set aside to honor Mothers. I personally feel blessed to be a Mother. I wouldn't want to know how my life would have been had I not had children. Life sure does throw you lots of curves and unexpected challenges to over come yet being a Mother has many blessing. When we were kids growing up, we had no concept of what being a parent was all about. All we knew was how tough it was being a kid and putting up with our own hardships and hurdles to overcome. My Mother is the most tenacious person I know. She has had to endure so much yet strives to live her life to the fullest that she can. It's evident that she's slowing down now and freely admits she can't do the things she once could, but it still doesn't stop her from trying. I've always been close to my Mom. Oh sure there were times in my youth that I didn't want a thing to do with her and was even embarassed by her, but even still was drawn to her. I was mostly Mom's protector in my mind. I watched her endure so much that I felt sorry for her. I love my Mom and see her now getting old and slowing down and that's hard too. I was over at her house on Friday and we spent the afternoon together since I have to work nearly all day today. She enjoys it when I'm over and tells me so.

I love being a Mother myself. It's had it's fair share of hurts and heartaches, but overcoming those moments and looking back on all the rewarding ones has a way of evening life out. I've learned alot by being a Mother. I have learned unconditional love above all. I'm proud of my own daughter as I watch her as a young single Mother of her own 2 kids. I can relate to her hard times and her joys. I actually feel as though with her being a single mom, we have bonded in away we never were able to before.

The Mothers in my family have come through alot in their own lives. I'm proud of them Mother....Heather and all of you and me I wish us all a very Happy Mother's Day.

To all the Mother's out there...may you have your own reflections on what being a Mother means to you. I wish you all a very Happy Mother's Day.
