Dear Inspired Souls,
I am feeling great loss this year of not only my mother and my wonderful second mother but two daughters who left this world many years apart who reside in my heart each and every day.
This is my first Mother’s Day without my daughter Crystal and my emotions have been in process all month as I experience the sadness and emptiness surrounding me yet I excitedly celebrated this holiday early with my wonderful caring son, his half sister, her husband and their beautiful young boys. I am blessed by the love and laughter of our blended family.
I look forward to my brother and sister-in-law arriving to celebrate my husbands birthday over this mother’s day weekend. I know it will be a festive celebration.
This week while shopping I was drawn to purchase a big bouquet of pink and lavender roses to bring home for myself. I lovingly arranged the flowers in two vases symbolizing one from each of my daughters as I felt their presence with me.
I plan to enjoy the beauty and grace of those roses throughout the holiday weekend. I hope that you will find something in nature, a memory, photograph or a gift to acknowledge and cherish as you remember your loved one(s) at this special time.
