No, I don’t have my holidays mixed up, it is a very special mother’s, day today. It is my mom’s b-day so I wanted to highlight her on my blog today.
There really are so many things to say about what a wonderful person and mother she is and I probably don’t say these things enough. What stands out to me today is that no matter what the age a mom’s love is always desired and wanted. Although I am thirty-something and am a mommy to 3 of my own I still find myself on many occasions literally saying, “I want my mommy”. To which my 5 year old, son always replies with a puzzled look on his face, “You are the mommy”….like hello, did ya forget. I hope one day when he is out from under my roof that he will understand the phrase.
There is something special about a mother’s love that is hard to pull away from. Selfishly it is usually when I am sick or exhausted that I utter that phrase….ironically, I am not feeling well today so am missing her all the more. Mom’s just have a way of making everything better!
I am grateful to have a good relationship with my mother. Although thousands of miles and an ocean separate us we still talk almost every day via email or over the webcam (thank God for technology). And I know that nothing can separate my mother’s love from me so mom today I want to say more than just Happy Birthday…. Mom, I don’t tell you enough that I love you too and miss having you around! You are a wonderful mother, thank you for years of unconditional love and sacrifice! (Okay, I don’t know about you but I am an emotional wreck right now)
Oh, and “I want my Mommy”!
