Happy Mother’s Day to one and all!

Let me start by saying this day always makes me weepy. I still miss my Mom every day. Not the gut wrenching grief of the past, mostly the dull ache of emptiness and the sadness of all she is missing. I cry as I write this. I am also so proud of my daughters and all of the things they have accomplished and all of the things they will.

My girls are doing things that I only dreamed of. They have already been more places and accomplished more than I ever have. We are fast approaching the time when they can say to me there is nothing you have said/done/will do that I haven’t already done. And I am so proud of them for fearlessly or even fearfully going where I have never gone before. To know that I had a small part in guiding them on the paths they are taking . . .

Seeing them grow into these incredible young women, makes me forgive myself a little and beat myself up a little less for all of the mistakes I made. I am comforted in the fact that I did the best I could with the knowledge I had. I still look back and think that I wish I had had more patience, more time, less stress, less angst. We all live and we learn and none of us come with instructions. I wouldn’t change the outcome in any way, shape or form.

I love you all so very much. Thank you for brightening my life and making it worthwhile.
