Mother’s Day has come and gone…


Another Mother’s Day has come and gone, my children were wonderful and I had a nice day. I felt very loved and I got some lovely cards and gifts . (I always feel loved by my kids – I’m lucky that way). My son called me to wish me a Happy Day – he is out of province so a visit wasn’t possible, maybe next year? And all 3 of my girls, my son-in-law and my 2 beautiful grand babies all got together for the afternoon. The grand kids were adorable as always. They know how to bring a smile to my face without even doing anything (except of course being themselves). My girls wanted to know what I wanted for lunch/dinner so they could prepare it for me. I had no idea. We went with croissants with ham and cheese, and angel food with mixed berries and whipped cream. It was lovely. I had a very nice day. But I did go hide in the kitchen for a bit, I did up the dishes while everyone else sat and chatted – it was nice to listen to them while having a moment to just be.

It’s hard because for me Mother’s day is often a mixed bag of emotions. I miss out on the doing for mother part. I love that my kids are there for me, that they go out of their way to spend the day with me, I know some mother’s do not get that. But it is hard when I see the flowers, and the cards as I walk through stores and look through flyers, and I know that I do not get to buy any of them.

I went out with a girlfriend the nite before mother’s day and while we were in the card section of the store I found a lovely vintage style Pooh Bear Thank-you card, I bought it with no idea who it will be for, but it helped me feel less awkward being in the card section. I also looked at the all the lovely flowers, especially the bouquets of yellow roses – my mother’s favourite – but did not buy any. That was a brief moment of sadness. I am glad I have learned that I can still smile even through the sadness.

Fair thee well, my sweet friend

Fair thee well, my sweet friend

This a Thank-you to all my kids,
A silent prayer for all those out there who find Mother’s day difficult what ever the reason,
And a Yay!!! to those of us who survived another one, because we are strong enough to make it through!

  1. To have your girls and grand babies around you …a special day to remember. Keep the card for you, it is a way of saying thank you to yourself, for your strength, your move ( which you were so unsure of) and to those that you love and remember. Happy Belated MD to you Andrea x


  2. You sound like you had a wonderful day *smiles* … and the part about being I in the kitchen and listening to the daughters gabbing … tis sweet. I can imagine you doing that.

    One day we will go and buy mom’s day cards for one another ok *gentle smile* … and the gifts will be a cuppa nod nods.


  3. You are very strong, and buying the Pooh card was a wonderful thing to do. Maybe you should keep it for yourself? 🙂 x
