I am linking up with Kate Motaung with this week's Five Minute Friday.
Today's FMF is: MOM
This Mother's Day, like the last six, will not be celebrated in the normal way at my house.
My mom died a little over seven years ago, and I will not get to tell her in person how much she means to me. So now, Mother's Day is like any other day for me.
I am not a mother myself, so I can't really celebrate it that way either.
I have a project in mind that I want to try out, to have in memory of my mom.
My mom wasn't in the best of health for quite some time, but she never really complained. She was a trooper. She loved her job at the local library, and she loved to eat!!
I miss her more and more every day, and I wish she was still here, but I am glad she is not sick anymore. It really took a toll on her, as well as us.
I know she would be proud of us, and how far we have come, in the time since her death.
I went back to school and took several classes for my degree (baking and pastry), and my dad and brothers are doing well.
But of course, we wish she was still here, so she could experience more out of life, and so we can tell her all about our days.
I love you and miss you so much, mom!!
