Mama’s Day

May 10, 2014

When my little girl used to tell me Happy Mother’s Day, I would tell her that if it weren’t for her I wouldn’t be a mother which she would reply…..” Mama, I was just going toward the light”. This child of mine, now a woman has made my life the most joyous I could have ever imagined for myself. Of course there were the difficult years and there was many a night that I cried myself to sleep. My husband would tell me that it would be better tomorrow and soon I would be drifting off to sleep…. and sure enough the next day would be healing and talking it all out with her. My relationship with my own mother was not always easy either, but I have to tell you, I would take any of those bad days again to just talk to her, thank her for the barbie doll clothes she made for me, the gowns made from her old prom dresses for a little plain jane girl with cat eye glasses. I would thank her for the charm school lessons that I hated and told them I didn’t need because I was going to be a farmer ( hey, it was the 70’s ) , the lessons have helped along the way. I would hug her and tell her how much I love her and thank her for taking us all to church and showing us how to thank and praise God…. even during difficult times. I would mention how much I admire her for raising three children on her own after a sad and traumatic divorce…. and I would tell her I want to be just like her when I grow up. Sadly I can’t, but whenever I get teary thinking about it , I just remember that I am just going toward the light myself and one day we will be in the light together. Until then I thank God for my mother and my beautiful daughter and know that He is in control of all things. God’s Blessings to all you mothers and mothers to be and children who made us that way.

  1. That’s a very sweet tribute to both your mother and your daughter — and a sign that you’re a wonderful mother and daughter yourself.
