This is a time that I am filled with a lot of different emotions. I'm much better now but it has been a long journey getting to this point.
There was a time not long ago when I would have been typing this post with tears in my eyes but I praise God that I am past that point, today anyway. I still have my days but for the most part I'm good with things now.
You see, probably like many of you here in the community, my mother has already punched her ticket into heaven. It has now been 25 years since I lost her. Time moves on for sure but that empty space in my heart remains and during this time, I'm especially reminded of it.
It is now a day of fond remembrance for me. I can think back and smile and laugh (my mom was so silly). My tears are now more of an appreciation of what she means to me still to this day but they are grateful tears.
I just wanted to take a moment to encourage those who have recently lost their mom. All is not lost and it does get better. She never truly leaves you and that piece of her that you carry in your heart is your assurance that your mother will always live on through you. The physical connection may be gone but the spiritual and emotional connection remains.
For those who still have your mother, please realize that it is such a blessing to still have her here with you. Celebrate this time with her and let her know that you love an appreciate her.
And to those mother's here in the community, thank you for your contribution to the world. You have had the most important job in the world and I know that you are doing great.
Enjoy your day and know that YOU ARE LOVED!
HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!!!
