Mother's Day is coming up in just a few weeks and, like many of you, my mom is no longer around. I miss her everyday but especially on Mother's Day. My mother was a generous, loving person and my best friend, even though we didn't live in the same city or even the same state. She would just hate that I posted those three photos of her here but, it's my blog and it feels good to me to honor her in this way. She was not afraid to look and act silly, as you can see in the first photo. She was completely in love with the ocean and island life and traveled to be near the sea as often as she could - yearly when we were kids, more often when we were grown & she and my dad were retired.
I wrote another blog post about Mother's Day awhile back; if you would like to read it, you can go here to learn all about the history of Mother's Day. Oh, yes, I almost forgot - I put together a Mother's Day gift guide. Check it out if you are lucky enough to still have your mom in your life or someone else you would like to honor on her special day!
