Mother’s Day is a day to show how much you appreciate your Mom did for you. Some people don’t necessarily have their Mother you may be thanking an Aunt that takes great care of you or even a close friend that treats you like their child.
My mom passed away almost 13 years ago so this day is hard not having her around. For years my grandparents took care of my sister and I after our mom passed away. My sister Clarissa was 7 years old when she died, Caralynn was 15 and I had just turned 18 years old. I wish that my mom was around to see my little girl growing up. I show Chelsea pictures of my mom each and every day. There have been many instances where I am thinking of my mom and I can just smell her perfume or feel her presence with me. I am glad to know that she is in heaven watching over me, my husband and my daughter.
I now have my Step-Mom Denise who to me truly doesn’t feel like a step mom just someone that was there at the right moment and feels like I am really just one of her own children. When I got pregnant with my daughter Chelsea she was right there every step of the way. I am glad to have her and my dad in my life. They come and visit us just about every month. I love having her in my life and feel that it is a blessing. Chelsea just adores her nana. I appreciate everything she has done for me and look forward to many years of memories and adventures with her.
I got my grandma back into my life about 6 years ago so I love being able to show her how much I appreciate having her in my life. She just turned 93 years old on April 9th. I am glad that I have my grandma in my life as well. For a long time I didn’t really have any contact with her. I truly enjoy every moment I get to spend with her. Its hard that she lives in a different state then I am in. So I don’t get to see her that often. I only get to see her a few times throughout the year.
I wanted to share with you some great gift ideas for Mothers and Grandmothers. I personally love personalized gifts or spa treatment type gifts. I think that gift baskets are a lot of fun as well.
I am now enjoying being a mother to my sweet 4 year old. She is my everything. I am glad to have her in my life. I love watching her grow up. She has her little moments when she thinks she can get away with everything. Then there are moments when she is as helpful as can be.
