With Mother’s Day just around the corner, it’s a reminder to me how holidays and birthdays will be different now that we are across the continent from our family and friends. I’m lucky to have just had a nice visit with my mom and we’ll be heading her way in a matter of days for Scout and of course, to squeeze in as many visits as we can. But I know it won’t be like this for the many other special days of the year. We’ll be spending a belated Mothers’ Day together the first weekend of our trip and I’m pretty sure it will have an outdoor theme. Maybe a picnic? We shall see. How are you celebrating your Mom this year?
I’m so blessed to have such a great example of a loving and giving Mom. For all that she’s done for me and my family, I am eternally grateful. She’s a reminder to me to keep on keeping’ on and has definitely set the bar high. Happy Mother’s Day, Mom. I love you.
