I haven't really celebrated Mother's Day since 1974 when Mom died.
I don't have any children so I don't get flowers, chocolate or breakfast in bed. I suppose, if I were somebody's mom, it might be a happy day for me in spite of losing my mother before she had a chance to grow old.
But I do remember her on Mother's Day. I light a candle beside her picture and I write a little note or buy her a card and lay it there knowing that, somehow, wherever her spirit resides, she knows I thought of her and love her still. This is the day I miss her the most. She meant the world to me. . .she still does.
For those of you who still have your moms, I hope you celebrate your love for her today in your own special way. And if you are a mom, I wish you a happy and loving day with your family.
