Mother's Day - 2014

I realize that this is a bit over-due. Well, a lot over-due actually. But I am just sitting here, reading, and my mind drifted off to my beautiful daughter and the time we spent together last weekend. Mother's Day.

As the years pass and each of us get older, I grow evermore conscious of how precious the moments shared with my beautiful daughter are. And oh how I treasure them.

Have the years always been smooth? No. Have there been bumps along the way. Oh yeah! One of the most tumultuous relationships that exist is that of a mother and daughter. And ours was certainly no exception to that rule! With that said, I am also mindful of all of the good times we've shared along the way. And all of the hurdles we have jumped over together. Hand-in-hand, mother and daughter against the world!

It brings a smile to my face as I watch the love of my life get older, growing into a beautiful young woman, talented, intelligent, gifted, sensitive, spiritual, loving, thoughtful ... well, you get the picture. :)

It is interesting, as we get older, we  hear our mother shine through us. I cannot tell you how many times I've opened my mouth and out popped my mother. I observe the same in my daughter. I see myself in her, as I see my mother and father in myself.

How blessed I am to have been given such a gift of nurturing the life of one of God's angels here on earth.

I love you my twinkle-twinkle-little-star.

With a smile on my heart, my mind recounts the time we spent together. Dinner, a movie, beautiful flowers, and most importantly - the memories. Locked away forever.

Happy Mother's Day from a very Happy Mommy!
