Mothers Day and Being Thankful
I miss them very much. However, this past Christmas I decided I wasn't going to be sad about that which I no longer had, but be thankful that I had had those people in my life. So this Mothers Day, I am so thankful for having had my Mother, and for her Christian influence and love. She truly loved without any prejudice or harboring any ill will toward anyone. She would forgive you, no matter what you did. She gave unconditional love. I will never be like her, even though I would like to be. I want to take this Mothers Day and wish you all the best. If your Mother, like mine, is no longer with you, try not to be sad. Talk about her and laugh, remembering all the wonderful times you had. Be thankful, not sad, and if you are blessed to have your Mother hug her, embrace her, and laugh. It is these moments that sustain us later in life.Some of you have your Mothers this year but maybe they don't recognize you, or maybe they are ill. Cherish the moment. Be thankful for what you have had. You may not have children, but I still wish you Happy Mothers Day. I know somewhere there is a child who has benefited from your love and nurturing. So Happy Mothers Day everyone, and thank you for coming Through My Back Door, where life is good.
ps: People are talking about what kind of decorations to use between now and Memorial Day. These are just a few I am enjoying for the moment.
Well I hope you enjoyed your visit. Next time we'll talk about Watt Pottery and yellow ware.
