Happy Mother’s Day Mom!


What a lovely day…Mother’s Day! ­čÖé┬á But I’m afraid that I was so busy letting my kids spoil me today, that I didn’t email my own Mom! ­čśŽ┬á 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!┬á I hope that, being a Mom herself, she understands how crazy things can get.┬á 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!┬á Then there was┬áthe 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.┬á I thought about you so many times today, when I was doing things for my kids that I remember you doing for me.┬á 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!┬á And a song came on that you used to sing, and it was like I could hear your voice.┬á So I belted out the song, so my kids could hear me sing it, just like I used to listen to you sing it.┬á 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!!┬á ­čÖé┬á I frequently think about that saying about how we turn into our mothers!!┬á Good thing you have always been such a wonderful mother! ­čÖé

Thanks, Mom, thank you for everything!  I love you!

! Feliz Dia de la Madre!

I especially want to say a special Happy Mother’s Day to┬ámy very special Mother-in-Law!┬á I have been so blessed to have her in my life, as a friend, a sister in Christ, the mother of my husband, the abuelita to my children and as the woman who prayed for me even before I was born (for years before I was born!). Thank you for all your love and support, Mamita!

Quiero mandar un saludo especial en este Dia de La Madre para mi Querida Suegra!  He sido tan bendecida de tenerte en mi vida, como una amiga, como una hermana en Cristo, como la madre de mi esposo y la abuelita de mis hijos, y tambien como la mujer que ha orado por mi aun antes de que naciera (por a~nos antes de que naci!).  Gracias por todo tu amor y cari~no Mamita!
