Mother’s Day 2013 will be a weekend of celebration starting with my annual Mother’s Day Coffee/Tea on Saturday. There will be much laughter, hugging, catching up and, of course, delicious treats. This year our friend Barbara has designed T-shirts to celebrate our annual event.
Sunday, our family will share a meal celebrating daughter Sarah as a Mother and now adding Grandma to my title. We are blessed.
As I reflect on Mother’s Day, I think about my Mother who passed away in 2001. I miss her every day. How many times have I wished that I could pick up the phone and talk to her!
Our journey as Daughters and then Mothers (and now Grandmothers) takes many twists and turns. I recently read this poem which reminds me of my Mother being there to support me and my own journey as a Mother. And the journey continues with my daughters.
Love you, Mom. Love you girls!
A Mother…When you’re a child she walks before you,
To set an example.
When you’re a teenager she walks behind you
To be there should you need her.
When you’re an adult she walks beside you
So that as two friends you can enjoy life together..
