May is that special time of year that we really get to celebrate and acknowledge one of the most wonderful TREASURES God has given each of us, our mothers. No matter who you are, moms hold a special place in all our hearts. For me, I was blessed to have three special mothers in my life. My mom, my step mom, and my mother in law. All three of these special ladies have played a huge part in who I am today, as a daughter and as a mother myself.
I learned a lot about love, grace, forgiveness, prayer, beauty, compassion, God, kindness, manners, strength and hope. I also, learned about loss, pain, heartache, time and sadness when I lost my mom and step mom within the last 5 years. They both passed suddenly and without warning. I look back and hold onto all the memories I can muster for these incredible women. I wish I had asked them to write down me their favorite recipes, asked more about their childhood, taken more pictures, and written them more letters.
Although I hate the loss of my two moms. I am still blessed and honored to have my mother in law in my life, who I treasure and adore. I take the time to talk to her daily, she always makes me laugh, she makes me smile and I am grateful to have her as my friend and my mother in law.
I only hope that one day that I can be half the mother these moms are to me.
and view her treasures. When you are finished come and join us on facebook at The Creativity Project and share your TREASURE images with us. Also, to all those mothers out there, I hope you had a very Happy Mother's Day.
