song: “Grandma’s hands” by Bill Withers

“God could not be everywhere and so he made mothers”_ Jewish proverb.

Today is mothers day in the USA and I find myself thinking about my mother and my grandmother as well. Nobody will ever love you like your mother will love you. I remember my mother telling me how much she loved me and that no one would ever love me like she loved me. I knew it then and I really know it now. I was blessed to have my beloved mother for 49 years of my life and though she’s been gone for a little longer than a year now, I love her more than ever. I can still hear her voice in my head, how she said my name, how she would always remind me that she loved me. The love of a mother is precious indeed. I hope this mothers day is going as well as possible and all mothers feel special and are treated with extra love and respect on this special day. I would give anything to be able to have my mother here again and remind her how much I love, need and appreciate her.

I just thank God I was able to try and express that while I still had my Mum here with us. Mum used to tell me at visits, and in her letters that when she was gone, she wanted me to always remember that she loved me very much. I do. I know and will always remember that, and what a blessing it is to feel your mother’s love.

Happy Mothers day to everyone.
