Missing My Mom On Mother’s Day


Lilacs make me think of my mom.  They are her favorite flower.  I couldn’t give her a paper cup with a bunch of lilacs from the yard like I use to do when I was a child…so this will have to do.

I wish we could have spent Mother’s Day together sipping Diet Coke, eating dark chocolate, putting a puzzle together, and reminiscing.  Thank goodness for email, thank goodness for Messenger, and thank goodness for cell phones.

The year we lived around the corner from each other was a gift that I will always be grateful for.  I wish it could have been longer, but I am so glad we had the time we did. 

A best friend, a mother, and a heavenly sister…God Blessed me with you!

  • Oh me, too, Whim. That would have made the day perfect. Thank you for the lilacs! They are my favorite flower.
