Well, it's mother's day, and I am a mom. I was actually really surprised that my little kids took some initiative and are really trying to make this a great day for me. Tom isn't here to coax them in the right direction, but they have all gone out of their way to do something nice for me. They made me presents at school. This is the video of it being presented to me. I love these guys, and find that being a mother is the most rewarding thing that I do. They never cease to amaze me.
On a much depressing side note, I can't help but think of my own mom on mother's day. She was such a great woman, so selfless, and so giving. I love her, and I miss her terribly. I was supposed to teach the lesson in church today, but I skipped out because I don't think I can sit through all the talks about how great moms are without bawling my eyes out. I would rather do my crying in the privacy of my own home. So I am sending my message to my mom who is somewhere out there.
Mom, I miss you so much. I still have a hard time convincing myself that you are really gone, and although I know that I can't see you in the flesh, I have felt you many time. You have been there for me when I really needed some comfort that no one else could give. You have inspired me, and continue to inspire me. I guess I have to watch myself even more now that you are watching me all the time. I hope I make you proud. I love you and I can't wait to see you again. On the plus side, I don't have to buy you presents anymore.
