It will be five years this week since my mom passed on.
It is an ache in my heart that never really leaves. I miss her so much.
With Mother’s Day coming up on Sunday, there are reminders everywhere of how many things I miss about my mom. ♥
Her favorite color was blue so I’m sharing this photo again. This was a flower and shade of blue she especially loved.
This is a previous post from 2008: A Day at the Park .
It was a special day I spent alone: to honor my mom, dwell on the good times we had… It brought tears to my eyes, re-reading it recently.
This year, I have a “knit and sew day” planned for my mom’s day. Two hobbies she absolutely loved.
I re-introduced her to knitting after she had given up the craft, many years ago. She was so glad that I did. Knitting was such a joy to her. And she taught me so much about sewing, she was an excellent seamstress. I learned from the best.
Some my happiest memories with her, making something beautiful out of a piece of fabric or a ball of yarn. The simple things and times that were so much fun and are such good memories to think about now.
If your mom is still with you here on earth, cherish the time you can spend with her. Never take it for granted. They leave such a gap in our lives when they are gone.
Happy Mother’s Day.
