You Heard It Here: Happy Mother’s Day!

Today’s post is significantly late, but the sentiment still applies. Happy Mother’s Day to all the awesome mothers out there! I lost my mom almost 18 years ago and I still miss her so much. I have to admit, I feel her presence with me a lot of the time so I know she’s still around and watching over my family and me.

Mom’s advice is with me all the time. I can here her words of wisdom in my head on a daily basis. Things like: “I don’t worry about something until I have to.” And, “Can’t you just get along with people?” Of course there’s my favorite. “This too, shall pass.” She had plenty, but those are the ones that stick with me most and seem to apply to all parts of life.

Here’s a shot of mom a few years before we lost her.


If the amount of friends a person has is any indicator of that person’s wealth, then my mom was one of the wealthiest people in the world. She had a group of close friends and she connected with them on almost a daily basis. She was a shoulder to cry on and an ear to listen. I only hope that I have a fraction of the patience, humor and sense that she did. And I also hope that I’ve passed some of those traits on to my own daughter.

Happy Mother’s Day everyone. Hope you have yours to hold and hug!

  1. Happy mother’s day to you too, Dee J. I’m glad that you feel your mother’s presence around you, protecting you and guiding you. I don’t believe we ever really lose the ones we love.

    Hope this week is better to you healthwise. Don’t work too hard. Hugs.

    • Hi Robena,
      I agree with you. I don’t think we really lose the ones we love either. And thanks… I hope I’m on the road to recovery. It would be nice! Thanks – as always! – for stopping in! You’re the best!

  2. Hey Dee J.,

    Hope you are feeling better. Happy Mother’s Day back at you! I hope it was a good one, despite the plague you are battling at the moment. I can definitely see a resemblance between you and your mom–in appearance and the presence of friends in your lives. I think she would be very proud of you!

    • Hi Sam,
      Aw… you made me teary! What a very wonderful thing for you to say! It was a nice day here! No complaints! Although I’ll be really happy when I ditch this cough! Thank you for dropping by! As always! You’re da’ bomb!

  3. A lovely tribute to your mom. My mom was one of a kind, too. I guess it takes a great lady to have a great lady, right?

    Hope you feel 100% soon

    • Hi Lynne,
      Haha. That sounds about right, since you are one of a kind, too! And thanks… I hope I’m 100% soon too! As always, thanks for dropping in!

  4. Happy Mother’s Day, Dee. I hope you’re feeling better. I contracted a head cold, which was not the full blown plague.

    My mom’s still around but I lost my grandma recently and sent some loving thoughts toward heaven yesterday, missing her.

    I hope you had a great Mom Day!

    • Hi Kate,
      Aw… I thought of you yesterday. The first holidays without our mamas/grandmamas are the hardest. Glad you only got a head cold instead of this disastrous yuck that I battled. Hope you had a good Mother’s Day too and thanks for stopping in!
