Mother’s Day

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.
