~A Mothers Gift~
Whenever I have the opportunity to share something special about my mom... I do it with such joy~ I feel especially blessed to have her by my side... She is always there with tidbits of wisdom, laughter and a calming presence whenever I have been upset. Recently my wonderful step dad ( which in my eyes was a very special "dad" to me) passed away rather unexpectedly. All of our worlds stopped and in that moment I thought to myself..."how can I ever comfort her as she has comforted me in the past? She has wiped away so many tears and walked me through many trials and tribulations of my own... but how was I to comfort her at this point in time with such a loss? Everyone heals at their own pace and there is no right or wrong way to go about it~ It is just important to know that we are there to surround them with love, kindness and healing prayers.

My mom and I have always been close have a very fun relationship. laughing and joking no matter where we where or what we were doing! To share the same sense of humor and joy with someone you enjoy being with and love is a gift and I feel so blessed! Even though I am sure at times people have wondered who are those" crazy women" and if we have had a drink or 2 before hand...LOL. We are always joking about that because she has never really drank a full alcoholic drink in her life! So as crazy as we are... when the family is together it gets even crazier!!

Although these just seem like words and pictures they ultimately touch the heart and make life worthwhile.. so as I sit here wondering what I can give my mom to comfort and give her hope in these days after the loss of someone so very special to her, I now realize that the gift she so tenderly gave me all my life is one that I can offer her in return~ "that everything will be ok... have hope for a new tomorrow, changes and all.. and that everything in life has a reason and purpose".
Life is beautiful, it has the ability to the cause the deepest of pain and saddness , yet the highest elation of love and happiness.
May you all have eyes to see the everyday beauty and treasures in your lives but most of all may you look into your mothers eyes and see the love & beauty that resides within her~
