Well here it is, the sad entry.
My emotions have been running on high these past couple of days, it's Christmas and my selfishness is getting the best of me.. I miss my Mom.
This year it feels a little harder then usual however. I am used to things to keep my mind preoccupied, like having other people to see and come see us, and this year it's just us. :(
Nothing to really keep my mind from wondering back to a day filled with her laughter, her wonderful grand parenting and her yummy onion omelet Christmas morning around 11am.
My Mother was a one of a kind woman! She made people laugh all the time. She had more little sayings that she always said.(more then anyone I have ever met.) She always found the item that was different, (from gifts to items in the kitchen cupboard.) She was mouthy, but with style. She either loved you and meant it, or didn't like you and didn't hide it! She always understood me and NEVER judged me. She was my best friend. She was my idol. She was AMAZING! She was my Mom! I love her. I miss her.
I am grateful for the 30 years I had her. I am grateful she met and loved 5 of my 8 children. I am grateful for all the lessons she taught me. I am grateful she didn't have to feel the pain of losing her Mother. But mostly I am grateful for the amazing memories I have with her!
The once excruciating pain that I once felt, is now less painful because it is cushioned by the love and joy my family brings to me.
A small prayer..
Thank you for my Mother, she was a gift of immeasurable worth!
Merry Christmas! Hope all the best to you and yours.
