Mother’s Day is Every Day

Striving to love us

The story of mothering

Each in their own way

My Mother

When I was about 10 I remember thinking:

My mother has a flat rear end.  (Mine wasn’t flat . . . yet.)

When I was about 15 I remember thinking:

My mother is really old.

When I was about 20 I remember thinking:

I don’t REALLY need my Mother anymore.

When I was about 30 I remember thinking:

I wonder what Mom would do?

When I was about 40 I remember thinking:

I’m becoming my Mother.

When I was about 50 I remember thinking:

I never told her I loved her enough.

When I was about 60 I remember thinking:

I miss her.

  1. Well said!! ….. and you know what!! ………. this could be a true story of millions of little girls who think similarly!! I must say you had a very beautiful mom who could put a movie star to shame!! 😉


  2. In such a short post you shared a beautiful lifetime. Every word is so true. I remember how OLD my parents looked (they were younger than I am now). All I know is that I wish she was here.
