I went shopping for Mother’s Day cards for our two daughters-in-law last week, and stood looking at the cards with a sudden wave of nostalgia. My mother passed away almost seven years ago, my dad and grandparents are all gone as well. How I wish I could turn back the clock for even an hour with them! But time has marched on, and suddenly my husband and I are the “oldest generation.” How did that happen?! It seems like just yesterday that our three kids were young, and we were still heading off to their grandparents’ house for holidays, and sending cards and flowers up to Minnesota on Mother’s Day. It seemed as if those days would never end. Does time move too quickly for you, too?
But–I still feel so blessed, being able to honor the mothers of our grandchildren on Mother’s Day, and also by the fact that our daughter and her husband have just moved up to the Midwest from the Gulf last week. They are staying with us while they start searching for a new home, and it’s lovely having them with us. I will be treasuring every minute.
My wish for you is that you were able to visit or call your own mom–or that yesterday was filled with good memories.
Wishing you blessings and peace,
Falling for the Rancher
