Missing My Mommy

Happy Mother's Day!

Having the day off without my mommy here with me is hard. I won't lie 
that it makes me a bit jealous seeing everyone out and about in the gorgeous 
Spring sunshine with their mothers, enjoying brunch and coffee/tea together

But instead of sulking around I chose to celebrate my mother by taking a
stroll through downtown, thinking about how much my mother has shaped
my life and taught me the lessons I needed to become the woman I am today

...Because the hardest job in the world is being a mother, a good mother

And regardless of whether our mothers are with us in person or in
spirit, the bond a mother and daughter or mother and son have is priceless

So here's to all the mothers out there who instill the advice, lessons, 
guidance and love we need to grow and become the adults we are today

Mommy, I love you so much!

Okay, so maybe the Canadian goose has nothing to do with this post but I 
thought it was cute; Maybe he/she was also feeling lonely without its mother?

Questions: How has your mother shaped your world?
What qualities does/did she process that you admire?

Aww, this is the loveliest post ever! I'm also missing my mom, but at least I have phoned with her today. :)

I love my mom, and I admire how perceptive and how wise she is. She has always supported me and backed me up, even against everybody else. Without her, I wouldn't have become the person I have become.

Kelsey, I like you lost my mom and am with her only in spirit on this day. I was out yesterday and saw all the dads with their kids picking out gifts. It made my heart skip a beat. I admire my mother's strength. She fought an illness for over 20 years and two years ago decided her body couldn't do anymore. She was always kind, honest and beautiful on the inside and out!
I actually went to the store today and bought her a pink and yellow tulip and sent them up to the skys with balloons today. I figured it was a way i could show my love and continued admiration for her from here on earth.
You're in my thoughts for the rest of the day.

My mom is my hero. She shaped who I am today and taught me so much. I can't wait to see her next weekend.

My mom is everything to me and I miss her so much! I still have her in my life, which I don't thank God for enough, but I'm several hundred miles away from her and won't see her until fall. :(
