I love Mother's Day--and not just because I know in a few hours I will get to talk with my little Elder ; ) (This year we are not skyping. He felt it would be too hard for him to focus the last couple of weeks of his mission if he skyped with us, and so that is fine with me--especially since I will see him in just 17 more days!!!
Today it is phone conversations, e-mails, facebook messages, texts, etc. I miss the hugs, reading to them--having them read to me, and the kisses goodnight.
I have to express my appreciation to all those who were such great examples to me. I don't know where I would be without their tutelage. Although I only had my mom for 13 years, I learned a lot from her. And, Helen was there to teach me how to deal with teenagers--she had lots of practice because my sisters and I weren't the easiest group ; ) And, then there was my mother-in-law I miss them all so much--especially on Mother's Day.
I know I have done a lot of things wrong, but none of my children can ever accuse me of not trying--maybe sometimes I tried too hard. But at least they know I loved them.
So, Happy Mother's Day to all of you Mother's out there. Hope you feel loved and appreciated.
Since it is Mother's Day, I want to put up a few of my favorite "mother" and "grandmother" moments--in no particular order.
