1st mothers day – motherless?

So I sit this morning thinking…I thought…well. what does one do for Mother’s day?  I am a mother. but I can not celebrate me unless I reflect – on what kind of mother I had…

She (mom, nonny) was – always excited to be excited about looking forward to something…she was always excited to see what the future hold even if ill.

look- and you know she is saying at what???

She was – always willing to try new things. And she always had the best accessories…

about to go zip lining

accessories...not just jewels

she always taught me how to keep marching forward…and always brush your hair…

shaggy and I

she would always get to your level and play…

 making even a cut out look good

on the beach no doubt hearing good stories

she was always someone you wanted to sit next to. someone you wanted to share things with…someone that taught you what a true friend was.

just us

The type of Nonny that bought the BEST toys. The ones that you Had to HAVE…even if they scared the bejesus out of your siblings…

The type of mom that LOVED white pants (and those who know her or ever saw her – she had zillions of them). She loved the 4th of July. She was a terror with a roman candle but unlike the rest of us never got hurt.

In the end…she was someone who meant the world to us. Someone that raised her to kids to adore her and each other. Someone that was always there. Someone that gave you love even if you were not looking.

showing love

Someone that loved her grandkids (and at times understood them better than their parents). Someone whose smile stuck with you – whose hug kept you warm – whose laughter made you laugh. Someone that when you felt like dancing and no one else would – she would. My reflections are all so positive. I have no complaints. I really think that any woman like her – the type that rolls with the punches, the one that can make you so mad you hang up only to have her call you back and say – whatever, I love you. The type that makes you warm to this moment thinking of her…is amazing. Mom – you are missed, always treasured…and a hard act to follow…

HAPPY MOTHER’S day…and thanks for listening to my rant.
