Happy Mother's Day
I believe this is a very happy day and it should be. But it's sad too for me and I suspect others too. I miss my mother.
The emotions (except writing this is tough) don't overcome me as much now as they did during the months after she passed on. Of course those emotions are still there and can surprise me at times.
Having these emotions is actually a happy thing if I consider the alternative of not bonding with my mother. The sad emotions of missing her shows that she gave me memories that stayed and will stay forever. She is not going to age or be far away anymore. She is fixed forever in my heart as she was.
I am happy to have these memories.
Here's a picture of her (late 1950's) that I shared on G+ for a Blast-from-the-past post. People share old pictures and I have done it a few times. You can check my G+ page to find more. You know you are older when some of the "old" pictures are from the 1990's. My kids were all in school in 1990's.

Wishing you the best of Mother's Days.
