What a lovely day…Mother’s Day! But I’m afraid that I was so busy letting my kids spoil me today, that I didn’t email my own Mom! Sorry Mom!
She is far far away, on a fun trip enjoying herself…it’s not like she’s home alone, sitting by the phone waiting for me to call…but I still feel sad for not talking to her today! I hope that, being a Mom herself, she understands how crazy things can get. I was so pleased to see that my kids actually were making an effort to pamper me…like serving me scrambled eggs and toast in bed…I just had to soak it in! Then there was the moment when I had to jump in and help find socks, iron clothes, pack a picnic, make supper, clean up, etc, etc. and suddenly the day was gone and I was exhausted.
I hope you understand, Mom. I thought about you so many times today, when I was doing things for my kids that I remember you doing for me. I made home-made Tang sherbert, and that first taste took me straight back to when I was little and you used to make it for us! And a song came on that you used to sing, and it was like I could hear your voice. So I belted out the song, so my kids could hear me sing it, just like I used to listen to you sing it. So many little things that I do and say are just like you, and even when I’m doing them, I’m aware how much I sound like you, and do things like you!! I frequently think about that saying about how we turn into our mothers!! Good thing you have always been such a wonderful mother!
