Mother’s Day is a very special day for me. It is a time to remember my mom who I lost 12 years ago at the young age of 62 and to honor my sweet mother-in-law who I have a very special relationship with. Growing up, the relationship I had with my mother was a tough one. I was a strong-willed child and she raised me and my siblings with a very firm hand. My dad worked non-stop so our mother was the main disciplinary in our house. I am who I am today because of her. Fortunately, as I grew up and went out into the world, the relationship we had and the one I cherished the most with her was “friend”. My drive home from work everyday ended with a phone call on my cell phone with my mom. I do miss her, some days more than others but the love between a mother and child is special.
In May of 2001, I celebrated my first Mother’s Day as a mom. Through many prayers and medical treatments, I am one of the lucky ones to have this honor. I am thankful. I am blessed. I watch my son quickly growing up. I want it to slow down but I know it won’t. So yesterday, as I opened my cards and enjoyed the perfume he (and his dad) got me, I am happy to have another Mother’s Day with them and with my mother-in-law. As I was busy creating jewelry pieces for those of you out there for Mother’s Day, I added a little extra love with each piece. Your loved ones love you so much and I really appreciate the opportunity to create something special for you! I hope your Mother’s Day was extra special. It doesn’t matter if you are a mom to children with two legs or with four legs you are special! Thanks for checking out my blog today! Happy Mother’s Day!
