Happy Mother's Day?

My reason for celebrating...

I was nervous about how I would feel today and I really didn't want to go to church where I knew they would celebrate it and everyone would say `Happy Mother's Day' etc but so far, so good. My sisters actually make fun of me for being the biggest crier in the family but I actually cry more from seeing beautiful things than sad things. So, I was actually teary eyed in church but it was from looking around at all the kids and thinking about what joy they have brought to their families. Talking about crying when seeing beautiful things, last weekend we went for lunch at Crescent Beach for the one year anniversary of my mom's passing and there was a suprise party next to us for a couple celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary. It was so precious to see them surprised and to know that they had a love that lasted 50 years! My sister Jantina started laughing that I was crying but I saw tears in her eyes too:)
So, to all those that struggle with Mother's day, whether you've lost a mother, a child, or are unable to have children, I hope that you will find something to celebrate on this day, whether it be someone or some memories.
