Hug your mamas today. I sure miss mine a little extra today. The last thing she said to me was that I was beautiful and she loved me. What a memory to have. She was the definition of a Pinterest Mama before there was even internet. She poured into us and fed our interests. She helped raise a kid she didn’t birth, and treated it as her own. I’ve never met a soul that didn’t love her. I still can’t walk through the grocery store in my hometown without stopping ten times for people to tell me I look just like her, and how sweet she was. I’m not a perfect mama, but I had the perfect teacher.
Its not a hard day. Or a sad day. It’s a family day. We don’t do moping and whining and sadness or being a victim in our family. We use our coping skills. Remember the good. Shed our tears, smile and keep right on living and loving life. She was the backbone of our whole family. We didn’t lose her. She’s still holding us all together. Now go kiss ya mama!
