Yes I know, another full blown Hallmark imposed holiday but…..I do know some terrific mothers, including my wife and my daughter in law. So, to honor mothers one whole day out of the year is great.
My mother passed away last year on June 4th at the age of 90. I do miss her at times what with her dry wit and sense of humor that I am sure I got from her. So, while taking my wife out to dinner last night for Mother’s Day, we sat next to a table where there sat a spitting image of my mother with I guess her family. I mean this lady had the same hair style and mannerisms my mother had. In fact, if they say there is a twin for every person, I found my mother’s last night.
We happen to finish up at the same time this lady and her party were leaving and I stopped her and told how much she reminded me of my mother. She even smiled the same way my mother would and she told me she was 90. Same age as my mom. I thanked her for reminding me that sometimes, remembering those that were a part of your life is something we all hold special. I wished her a Happy Mother’s Day and the smile on her face was worth a million dollars.
I miss my mom…..I saw her last night
Happy Mother’s Day
