I remember Mama . . .

cj Sez: I read someplace that love is the deepest emotion we share with one another, that love is immortal and transcends all. So, to all the Moms out there. . . I pray your Mother’s Day is filled to overflowing with love.

   When we lived many miles apart, I sent flowers to my two sons on Mother’s Day, because they have always been a source of pride and joy (plus I loved the idea they’d have to explain why someone was sending them flowers at work). Besides, I wouldn’t be a mother without them.

   This year, as youngest son Jeff and I mourn the loss of our beloved Mark, Jeff brought me three beautiful bouquets which I arranged in one vase to protect them from the cats. He could have given me a dandelion blossom, slightly crushed and moist from a sweaty little palm, as he did when he was little, and I could not have felt more loved. 

Precious memories, indeed.

   I can’t end this post without remembering my Mom, as I do most every day. I’m constantly wishing I could share special moment with her. I’m eternally grateful the Lord blessed me with a mother who lovingly soothed my fears and dried my tears. No matter what mistakes I made, she was a non-judgmental, sweet, sweet soul who believed in me and thought I could do anything, even write a book. Thank you, Mama. I miss you dearly.


cj’s Tip:
   Here’s a tip to help you out for Mothers’ Day gifts…a book must be the perfect gift. It’s always the right size; it’s non-fat, non-carb, gluten- and sugar-free; plus it doesn’t need watering yet doesn’t turn brown and wilt too soon. And it’s reusable!


   That’s it for today’s post. You-all guys keep on keeping on, and I’ll try to do the same. Prayers going up for your health and safety.
