MAMA'S DAY...

Mother's Day has been bittersweet for me for the past six years, I lost my mama in January of 2003...and for the next couple of years I just wanted
the day to hurry up and end...felt like a motherless child...
But time heals all...and now I enjoy the memories
Of my mama and the cool, loving relationship,
We had....God knows I still miss her,
And I certainly miss the fact that we would have
sat on the porch on Sunday laughing and talking,
Eating something she had cooked or I had cooked, or both, she love my chicken and rice...
And I know she would have loved to see that young beauty pictured here...her first great-grandchild...Amira Jameela...lord would we have enjoyed spoiling that child together...

This morning I was thinking about that year she died, I didn't want to go home, I felt I could not do it, my husband didn't question me, eventhough his mom was there, he understood and supported me....but on the morning of Mother's Day I got up, got dressed and told him, 'Let's hit the road...we need to see the other mothers in my life...at that time I still had three aunts and my mother-in-law and they all loved me and considered me to be their child...so home we went,
And though there were some tough moments that day...it was good...
So this weekend I will go again as I have always done, spend some time with my Aunt Alice,
She is the only one of the my mom's sisters left...and spend some time with my mother-in-law...
And know that I am blessed, for what I had and what I have...

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY AND GOD BLESS YOU ALL...

Beautiful blog!
While we will always miss the mothers that are no longer with us. We do need to celebrate with the mothers that are still with us.

I hope you have a wonderful Mother's Day
