Happy Mother's Day!
For some reason I was having a problem trying to upload my picture and post a blog post. Anyway, every Mother's Day since my Mom died, I think about her and how she lived her life. My Mom was only 49 years old when she died. In that short amount of time, she made such a huge impact on so many peoples lives. She was not a "hero" in the traditional sense. She did not wear a military of law enforcement uniform but she was my Hero. When the College recruiter interviewed me, 25 years ago, and he asked me who my hero was, I said, my Mom, he was shocked that a teenager would say that. I knew back then that she was an extraordinary person. I just wish I would have showed her more of my appreciation back then. Appreciation is why I created CHP Appreciation Day. I could say a lot about that but for now, I will focus on my Mom. Anyway, we went to the cemetery on Saturday instead of Sunday because I knew it would be ridiculously crowded. Sure enough, it was already crowded on Saturday. It's such a beautiful cemetery. There is always a lot of distraction so I don't feel like I can really just think. I miss my Mom. I miss her everyday. I used to talk to her everyday and tell her about the daily things of life. I think about how no one can ever replace her. It hurts my heart that she is not able to continue her relationship with my girls, especially Tina. It was an amazing thing to see them connect. Tina loved my Mom so much. She needs her. I need her.
I am thankful that God allowed me the opportunity to be able to celebrate this day. I was not supposed to have kids. Yet, God granted me this gift. I hope I can be the Mom that He wants me to be.
Thanks for reading. God Bless You!
