While reading the viewer’s entries for Mother’s day, I felt that I also wanted to share a little about my mother. It has been 15 years since she passed away, yet I constantly feel her presence around me, guiding me and mostly, putting a smile on my face.
I am a mom of two and a grandmother of four. But while my mom was alive, I felt very much like a kid around her. She would every now and then, remind me to “grow up” and I miss that very much. Some would say that as you age, your mom becomes more of a friend. But for me, I wanted her to be my mother, always! No matter how much I aged, I cherished and loved the feeling of being a child in her company.
She was an amazing mother; very loving, caring and giving. She had an air of magic in her as she spoke. Her greatest talent was that she would make you feel really good about your own self. One touch or look from her, and you felt something very special inside. I try very hard to be like my mom, but it’s a tough act to follow.
I love you mom.
