I love these words. Even though this is a repeat post from last year on this day, why redo something that has already been done well? (Although my lilacs are not quite this far yet).
Today I celebrate my 48th birthday. I remember my mom always said she celebrated Mother's Day - on her birthday, thankful for the day her mom became her mother.
Although my mom has now been gone 10 years now - her love, support her influence on my life is all very much a part of who I am today. I don't think there is a day that goes by that I don't think about her.
How blessed I was - to have her for my mom.
One comfort I have . . . my mom knew how much she meant to me and how much I loved her.
