Saturday night, sitting by a warm Bonfire in our back yard and I am reflecting on my past. This is Mother’s Day weekend, and also my Mother’s 85th Birthday!
Like many Mothers and Daughters we had our up’s and down’s, it is just crazy to me how life happend all too fast. My Dad always said ” The older you get the faster time flies!” And it is completely true!
So let me take you back abit…My Mom, she wasn’t June Cleaver, but close enough. Stay at home Mom, Girl Scout Leader, Class room Mom, ect…I consider myself very lucky to have had such an amazing parental team!
Mom was very open minded about many things, not all, but always honest to a fault. She was THAT Mom who would wake you up on a School day and say, Ok time to wake up…we are going to the Beach today….SURPRISE! Our house was also the house where all of my Friends wanted to come and hang out. Growing up we also took my friends on vacation during the summers when school was out on vacation.
So this Actually is the day after Mother’s Day That I am writing this I was spending the day with my mother yesterday and had not had a chance to finish this. The day was spent for the most part of me cooking various Mexican dishes since that is my mother’s Favorite food… It was just 4 of us my parents my husband and I, Be quiet and nice enjoyable day with food and family.
I feel like Mother’s Day is a good time to reflect back on the kind of relationship you shared with yor Mom. As my Grandma always said you only get one Mother. As for me and my Mom, I feel very blessed to have received the Mom I got. At 85 years old I’ve been very lucky to have had her around this long, With hopefully more years to come.
So Here is to hoping all of you had a wonderful mothers day surrounded by the ones you love.
