Mother’s Day is upon us.
I’m a mother and every year, I look forward to spending Mother’s Day weekend with my husband and my kids. We don’t usually do anything grand to celebrate, but having them around me to hug and to hold on Mother’s Day is more than enough to make my day!
Once again, I’m happy to be partnering with Teleflora this year, to celebrate all types of moms and the daily obstacles we all go through as moms to love and protect our children.
This post is rather emotional for me, as every Mother’s Day, I think about my mother. Our family lost her 12 years ago and we miss her so much. I will alway cherish her memories – the way that she cared for me and my siblings (nine of us all) and how she was always there at the right moment. Those moments were unforgettable. Yes, we were one of those big families. I had four sisters and four brothers, and I still don’t know how my mother did it all. But she did. Yes, she did.
I remember her waking up so early every morning, getting busy in the kitchen, preparing us all for school and making sure we have everything we need before we head out. There was always hot breakfast, lunch and dinner on the table. She loved cooking, crafting and sewing and I remember her making little dresses for me and my sisters. I personally think I have inherited some of my mother’s traits. I like keeping myself busy and always creating and making something lovely with my hands like she used to do.
My mother truly was dearly-loved by many – a doting mother and a devoted wife, a sister with a big heart and a friend you could always turn to whenever you needed one. She made a lot of sacrifices for me and my siblings. I know most of us has a mother that we look up to. But for me, it will always be my own mother. She will always be the BEST MOTHER ever. She was one true example of a #OneToughMother.
But.. life goes on. And now that I am a mother myself, I try to be the best mother that I can be to my children.
So today, I encourage you to take time to call your mom, or spend the day with her if you can, listen to her.. give her a hug or two. Don’t wait until tomorrow, or Mother’s Day. Do it today. No excuses. You know, the one thing I wished I would have done more when my mother was still with us was talk to her and reach out to her more. Enough said.
