Mother’s Day has become a day of peace, and a reminder to enjoy the moment, of living life. My mom is gone from earth but present in my mind and heart. My girls are grown, and busy in their lives. I was never one for being “celebrated” as a mom, on Mother’s Day. Gifts, flowers and cards are always nice but it felt sort of silly, to be awarded, for being me.
I got a rose today. We were at our weekend place and went for breakfast at the local bar & grill on the lake. The new owners decided all women would get a rose for the day. We were the only ones in the place. I got a beautiful red rose bud. I enjoyed breakfast, and eventually I put that rose bud in a vase that I bought two years ago, in honor of my mom.
Three of us kayaked on the lake, later. I love being on, or beside, water.
Mom always wanted to learn to swim.
