Today's A Rough One

Dear Mom:

And so this lonely journey begins. The first of many firsts here, this one's tough for me Mom. Make no mistake, every day I miss your laughter and kindness. But today, being Mother's Day, it's amplified and I long for you to still be here.

I want to thank you for being everything a Mother's supposed to be. You loved unconditionally. We could do no wrong in your eyes - you were proud of us even in those times that you probably shouldn't have been. You didn't care, we were your children and you treasured and stood by us. You tried for a large family and lost several of your "babies" in the process. So I know that David and I meant the world to you - we were "special" because we made it. And you always treated us that way.

Your favorite saying was "you can have anything you want" and you meant it. You gave us the world. You carried on that tradition with our children, your grandchildren. Ty will never forget that he was "your boy" and Linds "your little lady". You didn't care about possessions or materal things - your family was the greatest gift as far as you were concerned. But really, you were the gift.

When I was pre-buying cards for you that I liked, I stopped and pondered for a minute. Maybe it was a bad omen to buy cards in advance?....."nah, don't be silly" I thought. Guess I was wrong...these are the cards that you'll never see.

I remember two years ago I entered a Mother's Day contest for you and won. You carried that submission around in your purse and showed everyone that would look at it - you were so proud. But really, it was I who was proud of you. (I will print it later, so the whole world can see it Mom).

I was in awe of you - we were such a good team. Still are, as far as I'm concerned.

I love you Mom and miss you more than words can say. Happy Mother's Day.

Love Deb,

I am more and more in awe of how great your mom was, Deb, with each little story that you tell about her. I'm sort of glad that you bought those cards; they will be for her always.
