Happy Mother’s Day…

So today is Mothers day.  I wish I could say that it’s a great day for me, but that would be a lie.

For those that don’t know, my mom went home to be with our Heavenly Father back in ‘09.  I’ve missed her every single day since.  There’s so many things I’ve wanted to share with her, so many times I’ve wanted to pick up the phone can call her.  I still wish she’d been here to see me get married.  For whatever reason, God decided differently. 

Somedays I’d give my right arm just to be able to hold mom in a hug (yeah, I know, sounds weird, right?).  So on today when we celebrate our mothers, it is hard on me still.  But I drill remember all the wonderful times I had with mom, so it’s not so bad. 

And now that I’m married, I do have a wonderful mother in law that I can share the day with, and that helps reduce the pain.  So I’m looking forward to this evening and dinner with the inlaws.
