Sorry if I drove you insane sometimes. You loved me before you knew me and I am so grateful for that. How you make ends meet, all the while fighting your way through your own struggles, is beyond me.
You are my life. You were so proud of every little accomplishment I made and never shied away from showing me off to your friends. So definitely check it out if you want to make it fancy and special. She once railed against those who honored the holiday by sending only a printed greeting card, saying, "A printed card means nothing except that you are too lazy to write to the woman who has done more for you than anyone in the world". She further argued that Mother's Day is force fed by businesses pushing flowers, cards, chocolates and restaurants for financial gain. The love you provided me was abundant. Whether volunteer-coaching middle-school football or basketball or taking people's dirty dishes in the cafeteria at the K-25 Gaseous Diffusion Plant in Oak Ridge, Lee was all in. Those were not pretty. They too will be remembering. I was the girl who mowed your yard. That often seems to happen as we age. You loved me anyway.
Now that I'm grown, I realize I don't just feel gratitude for you-but admiration. Trust me! I'm naturally an impatient person, and when things aren't happening on my time, I get aggressive. You are my Path and You guide the Blessed Life.
Today is Mother's Day - a day when we celebrate the great, unbelievable and often thankless work that mothers do every day. You provided a listening ear.
Pearl V Puri: My mother has always been special person of my life. I am one lucky guy! "I sure wish I could call mine". So did I. We were both so incredibly wrong.
When I was 19, I graduated from college. Leaving behind my whole life in an effort to start over somewhere else was tricky. "And I just knew it". She has always allowed me to live a life.
Ironically, another of mother's floral legacies is also in full bloom, its timing seemingly appropriate with the legendary droplets of blood on the dogwood. This Mother's Day, we honor all those fearless, strong and attractive women who looked this messed-up world straight in the eye and took a gamble ... on hope, on the future, on us.
Time: With time, priorities changes.
It was in 2007 when you made a decision to work overseas for our future. Still, I feel u. You knew nothing when you left.
Motherhood has definitely put a lot of things into perspective for me. She taught me to be the best.
I've been surprised at how much I have enjoyed her at every stage of her life. "Have you watched the videos?" The way you always brighten up a room and bring about such a amusing demeanor is so unbelievable. "What I do need to do is be open and vulnerable, to listen and be willing to adapt and change, to be courageous enough to say, 'tell me more ... help me understand ...' and then be willing to really listen ..."
Cookbook: Mostly all moms love to cook.
Knowing of the mood in America, I know there are those who might be offended by that concept. Thank you for always being there when I need you.
With love from the luckiest [son] in the world. I wouldn't be here without you.
The modern holiday of Mother's Day was first celebrated in 1908, when Anna Jarvis held a memorial for her mother at St Andrew's Methodist Church in Grafton, West Virginia. We might be busy throughout the year, but this day gives us a very good opportunity to make up for all the time that we couldn't spend with our first love, our mom. I hope you know what an wonderful influence you have been for me in my life. If there's one thing I learned from my mother's death, it's how kind and empathetic most people are. Or just for loving me.
