Tomorrow is Mother’s Day and I’m thinking about you. When I think about you and Mother’s Day, I always think about gardening. I wrote about that last year and I will surely plant some flowers in your honor this weekend.
One of the things I love most about you is that you have taught me to embrace, create and enjoy beauty in this world. From the simple to the spectacular. Like folding freshly-washed, fluffy, white bath towels, that stack perfectly in a linen closet. Like hosting an amazing celebration for a loved one, with over-the-top decorations and delicious food. Like sipping morning coffee in the backyard, taking note of new blooms and hummingbird visitors.
On Mother’s Day, I get a little sad because we can’t be together to celebrate. To do something special, or just sip some Mama Martinis together. But I am thinking about all the wonderful times we’ve shared in the past year. My children and I have been blessed with an abundance of Mom/Nana time and I am so grateful. I’m remembering…
I treasure these memories. And look forward to many more in the years to come. I am blessed to be your daughter and proud to call you Mom.
Happy Mother’s Day!
I love you,
