A wonderful Mother's Day!

I had a wonderful mother's day. My daughter Shannon came down to see me. She took my picture.

She bought me a Mother's Day Card that had the most heartfelt saying. It made me cry.

The card read:

Now that I'm older, I can step aside and be more objective than I was when I was just an immature kid growing up. I understand better some of the problems you had, the trials you faced, the heartaches you endured, and the feelings you must have felt.

Mother, you worked so hard for our family. You loved us and sacrificed for us. I remember when your heart was broken at times. I wish I could have helped you more.

If I could relieve that part of my life, I'd show you better how much I loved you and appreciated you then. I would undo the things that I did that were inconsiderate or unfeeling. I'd hug you more, thank you more, ask you more questions, and listen better.

Mother, if I ever took you for granted, I didn't mean to. Maybe I didn't know how to show love then, but now that I'm older, I hope you can see how much I love you and that I appreciate you more and more every day.

Shannon bought me the "Friendship" Willow Tree figurine.

She also made me cinnamon rolls for breakfast.

Eddie also made my Mother's Day special. He ordered me some peanut brittle from See's Candies online.

My beautiful niece, Rachael, sent me a lovely Mother's Day card for a Special Aunt. I am only so special because my wonderful niece is so special to me.

I also received a nice card from my step-father and Judy. A special thanks to them for remembering me on Mother's Day.

I don't think I can let a Mother's Day go by without mentioning how much I miss my Momma, but all in all I had a wonderful day.
