watching out the window.. waiting for her arrival… then seeing her car pull up… the door open…
a puppy dog on a leash prancing out of the car with such energy and anticipation
the excitement building as they approach the door..
the greetings, hugs, smiles and laughs…
emotions barely in check as each roommate hugs.. then it is your turn and you feel the squeeze……
all is right with the world again as you feel a mothers love, cause there is nothing like it.
then the catching up, the four conversations that immediately start.. all at the same time.. all different topics…
seeing all the smiles as each waits for a reply, the puppy bouncing and running circles.. happy barks, demanding attention.
and then another car arriving.. another excited greeting, more hugs and more love so evident and freely given.
even more conversations starting, the puppies excitement showing in her leaps for attention, wanting the hugs that everyone else is sharing…
more smiles and it happens again.. and again.. two more cars arriving and so many more hugs, the puppy finally in my arms and covered in puppy kisses..
FOUR MOMS, WOW… what can be better!
A sunny day filled with love and laughter
What is mothers day? flowers and gifts? cards and phone calls? *shakes my head* oh they are nice and Moms do love them…
but I know the secret…
it is so simple you see
it is just four letters
any way you offer it, it is always received so happily.
so through the day…
sharing a smile
hugging so many times
watching her sneak a look at you and the smile on her face when she does, feeling so much affection each time that she does.
seeing your roommates smiling so much, and catching their Moms glancing at them with pride… love.. too.
fun snacks, great meals and even wine too.
but it was the Moms that made it so special as they usually do
*sighs* it is over now, just another memory in my head… but each time I peek in my mind.. my smile reappears.
and then looking at my roommates and suddenly seeing them grin.. knowing they peeked too and were visited again.
I use to ask.. when is daughters day…
thinks I know now..
it is when I am with my mom.
