Since today was Mother’s Day, I celebrated the fact that I am still here to be a Mother to my children. Each one of them called me or contacted me in some way, and let me know that even though I don’t see them or hear from them every day anymore, they still love me and think about me. That is enough to celebrate.
My Mother’s Day started yesterday, with Becky taking me and Fabgrandpa out to lunch at Wallace Barbecue in Austell. After that, we went to a junk store, and an antique store. Fun! When I got home, Becca called and we talked for an hour. I love talking to her. She just got a new puppy, and she told me all about him. He sounds like such a smart little guy. He is catching on really fast to “stay” and “sit”, and is already letting them know when he has to go outside.
Today, Emily shared a video of Parker tasting applesauce for the first time. How sweet was that! Then, Seth commented on my Facebook Wall to let me know he was thinking of me.
It is so nice to know I am still loved and needed by my adult children.
This was about three years ago now. Amelia and Parker weren’t born yet. Becca, Ken, and Rafe were not there with us, so they are missing from this photo too. I do not know how we would get everyone in one picture now!
