A very happy Mother’s Day to all the moms, grandmothers, daughters and mother figures.
My question this week is what are your best memories of Mother’s Day?
I never got to celebrate my mom. She died when she was 26, and I was 6. This not only left a big gap in my life but also left me a bit unprepared to fulfill the duties of a mother when I became one.
Well Time is a great teacher and I learned to be the best I could be as a mom. I am so proud that both my daughters and daughter-in-law are great mothers. They are wise, loving and are raising their kids so well. I must say that the mothers nowadays have access to great resources via the internet but the effort is all theirs.
I have some beautiful memories of when my kids surprised me on Mother’s Day. I remember six years ago when I had had my second knee replacement surgery and was not very mobile, as it was just a few weeks after my surgery my kids went and got me a pair of diamond earrings. They were very beautiful! But more so because they were a very special gift from all three of them. I treasure them very much.
This is the card I got today!
These are my memories. I’d love if you could share some of your best Mother’s Day moments.
