This image just about reflects how it is with Moms and daughters. Last Mother’s Day was only a few weeks after my mom had passed and it seemed not to be too hard a day. In retrospect I was still in shock.
This year has been incredibly emotional as I hear and see all the ads for Mother’s Day gifts. If you are lucky enough to still have your mom, don’t take her for granted and say all the things you want said. You don’t always have as much time as you think.
Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms!
