When I spoke to mom today I mentioned that this Sunday would be Mother's Day. I told her how sorry I was that I would not be able to spend it with her, due to the distance, that we live apart.. Ruthie said "that's okay, I understand ". My reply was "mom I celebrate how much I love you and how special you are to me everyday". Mom laughed. I then said "mom to me I celebrate you as being my mom each and every day of the year". We thru our kisses and then hung up.
What I realized was how true this now was for me, and I felt in my heart so much love and wamrth to her. What a wonderful feeling since this was not the way I always felt. The love I feel for mom now, could melt all the ice in Antartica.
