A Cool Reminder

What Difference A Day Makes

The window curtain moving back and forth

Reaching for my sheet and pulling it up quickly

The cool breeze blowing

Yesterday the first day in the 90's

Hot and humid

Mother's Day a special time for everyone to give thanks

Appreciation for many things we take for granted

It is true

Where would be without all the mothers who gave birth

To their most precious gift

All the care and love that they continue to give

Long after their bundle of joy has arrived

If we could only give half our love in return

How much better would all our lives be

Two years have passed

I can no longer tell my mother the happiness she has given me

Never once forgetting what she has meant to me

A little sad but mostly thrilled for the times we did have

For those who have their mothers

Wouldn't it be something

To surprise mom for no reason at all

With an extra hug or a kiss

Another time to treat mom extra special

Not with a store bought gift

Just sharing time together

The best of all gifts

It's never too late

To wish all mothers a wonderful day

This is a beautiful tribute to all the Mother's in our world. I love how you expressed missing your mother but also have all the great memories. I miss my mother as well. Hope you and your family had a very special Mother's Day. Have a nice night my friend.

A great reminder too, to celebrate mother's love everyday by letting them know how special they are in our lives. Mom's would be thrilled to get a phone call a day for a single minute if not longer just to say you are the most important person in my life, and I thank you for being my mom...we can do that only while they are with us, and if we fail to, then in later years we think about them and talk about them and celebrate their memory. My wife an I do remind ourselves very so often for gift of God our mom's were to us.

Voted beautiful , interesting.

Minnetonka Twin I know you miss your mom so much. Thinking of her often brings back all the love. It never disappeared it is in another form. Like playing a different note both are so different but they trigger unlimited fulfillment. Sharing our thoughts gives me great comfort. Thank you for visiting and commenting.Michael-Milec I tried my best to call my mom daily when I couldn't visit to show her she was never far from my mind. Many times our lives didn't change much but when I heard her voice nothing else seem to matter. Thank you for sharing and commenting. Enjoy your night.
