I wasn’t going to write a Mother’s Day post. Everyone’s written something, said the words, and made the pretty graphic to accompany it. No one needs another Mother’s Day post to read. I have a gift for my mom, I wrote my heart-felt sentiments in a card, and in a few short hours I will be celebrating this day with her, by her side.
However, last week my mom told me she didn’t feel like celebrating Mother’s Day. My dear grandma, her beloved mother-in-law, died and she felt the grief would be too much for everyone, including my dad.
You see, that’s what my mom is like. She puts everyone else in front of herself.
There are so many words I could use to describe my mom. So many words, but none could truly do her justice. She is beloved and I consider myself blessed to have this extraordinary woman in my life.
My mom has a love that she can’t contain. Her hugs are frequent and her compassion is immeasurable. As the years pass, our relationship grows, and I see my mom as a dear and cherished friend.
The past couple of weeks have shown me just how amazing my dear mom is. How in the midst of her own grief, she would call or text me to see how I was doing. How she has given so much to her family in this time of need. I have witnessed her caring heart… serving and loving everyone around her.
No store bought card, bouquet of flowers, or gift could match the sentiments of a child telling their mom how much they love her. I wasn’t going to write a Mother’s Day post. Everyone’s written something and said the words but these words, are mine. These are the words to a dear mom, who I love more than I could ever express.
I love you Mom. Today I celebrate you.No card or gift could match the sentiment of a child telling their mom they love her. #mothersday Click To Tweet
