I will be calling my mom in just a few minutes to say "Happy Mother's Day!" It will mean so much more this year than in previous years. I've come to realize just how precious life is...not that I haven't known this before, but after the this past season of my mom's life...I've learned it in a deeper way.
She is surrounded by her children and she knows beyond a shadow of a doubt that they love her. They love her regardless of anything that has taken place in their raising. They love her and respect her because she is the one that has loved and cared for them all of their lives. She has shown them that you can endure the pain of loss - whether it be a spouse, a leg or the home that you have always known...you can be okay.
Loving your Mother today is important, because it is a day set aside to love on them and let them know how much they mean to you. But, don't love them just today, love them every day for the rest of your life, because life is precious.
I love you mom...you are the strongest woman I have ever known!
