Hi all! Not a lot of time to chat today. I am taking my sweet mother out to lunch and on a shopping trip for her birthday. then back home for her favorite- homemade blackberry crisp.
She is 76 years young today.
Those of you other ’40 somethings’ (or older) who are fortunate enough to have your parents still living–do not take them for granted.
Call your father.
Write a letter to your mom.
Tell them how much you appreciate everything they did for you over the years.
Isn’t is amazing how when we are young, it is easy to pick out our parents’ “non-strengths” and find fault with them? I was just sure my mom was the most old-fashioned, strict, stick-in-the-mud sometimes. The older I get, the more I see only her strengths and marvel at what an amazing job she did raising two kids as a single mom.
She is my hero…..
Hug your hero today, even if from afar……
