This is the first mothers day I have not been with my mom since....well....the day I was born.  As I sit here drinking my coffee, I miss her.  I wanted to thank her for being my mama today on my blog.  I realize that as a mother, we don't have a choice which child the Lord chooses for us.  We kind of get what we get.  :)  But, The Lord and His wonderful ways knew that I needed her.  That she would be the best mama for me.  And for that I am forever thankful.  She has taught me many lessons in my life.  She still continues to teach me lessons.  And I am almost 43 years old!  The one that she is teaching me now is that we trudge on, in spite of our circumstances.  She has been given some pretty big blows with her health the past several years.  It has been hard on her.  But, she still presses forward.  I am so proud of her for that!!

So mama, even though I am not there with you physically to celebrate this special day for mothers, I am with you in your heart and you are in mine.

I love you so very much,
