The day is near, perhaps it has arrived now for some, with all our time zones that tie us together in a confusing knot. The day where we, hmmm, in some countries, celebrate our Moms. As I see in our smaller world that is tied together in our interweb, Mothers day is a day that is shared on different dates in our various countries.
For us it is tomorrow, Our home will be graced with four, no six moms. Moms and moms of moms. It is a special day for us.
Moms are not always close, sometimes the distances are too great to share closeness with them. Some distances are insurmountable. Those moms though, are still in our thoughts, greatly in our minds. We can feel them so strongly as the date reminds us that they are not, perhaps beside us. They are in us though. They will always be in us. They shaped us we are a part of them. I feel they live on in us and we can turn to them, turn inside and draw some comfort, even share a smile with them… in our minds. I do this with my Father on Fathers day. Eventually we all have to do this, I know. This is life, not always fair.
So I am also thinking of another mom and will be tomorrow. I will peek in my mind and smile with her. I know she would like that. I too, am thinking greatly of her daughter, my new friend. I wish you comfort R. Remember she is still inside you, it is not the same, I know. you are not alone though. Peek inside, you can feel her there, draw some comfort. Share the day with her, in your mind.
Happy Mothers Day to all the Moms, those that are reading, and those we share the day with, in our minds, and miss so terribly. You live on, in us all.
