Default Good Morning May 12th 2013

Good morning everyone from the great state of Texas, where it is suppose to be in the 80's and sunny.

I am up early this morning, because I received a Happy Mothers Day message from far away. A place where time doesn't matter.

As I have sat here, so very early, I am reflecting on what Mother's Day means to me. In many ways it is the saddest time of the year. It is a day where I look back, and so many of the memories are sweet, but also regret for missing out on so many more.

Yesterday I attended a welcome home party for our neighbor's son. He was the intended target the night I lost my son. Instead of asking why, I am happy that he survived. It also gives us a bond that no one else can feel, but us.

I also reflect on being a mom. I am sure many of you will agree it is one of the hardest jobs a person can have. So many times you wonder if you did it right, and said the right thing. I also think of those mom's who saw fit to give up that baby, so that others could be a loving parent.

I am also reflecting on the mother of mine who died so many years ago. She had a terrible time being a mom, but I am sure she did her best. I am thankful that she gave me life, and gave me examples of what not to do as a mom.

My message this morning said, "Happy Mother's Day Mom. Grandma and I are here, and we wish for you to have a good day. We love you."

It makes me smile to think that over night, a new born baby came into this world, and a new mommy will wake up. I wish her all the happiness in the world, as I wish for all of you.

Happy Mother's Day! Thanks for sharing your thoughts with us Luanne. It's a cooler day here in Ottawa and fortunately my wife and myself still have our mother's to see today. Mine is in her 91st year and my MIL is in her 86th year. Have a good day everyone.
