With Mother’s Day right around the corner, I would like to encourage you all to make memories with your Mom. Keep her as healthy and happy as possible. If her mobility is not what it used to be, don’t let that stop you. Consider giving your Mother the GIFT OF GO this Mother’s Day.
I have wonderful memories of my mother. Having only lost her a year ago, many of those remembrances are glazed over with a bit of sadness. But there are many, many happy thoughts as well.
When she was young and strong her life was a gift to those around her. She was a nurse with a special gift to love and care for the elderly. She was a mother that was involved in the lives of her children. She hosted youth events for our school clubs in our modest home. Barely fitting everyone in but making all feel welcome. She and my Dad were youth leaders in our church and I believe they made eternal differences in many of those kids. She was a faithful wife. Always supportive of my Father and close to his side always.
A few years after my father passed she came to live with my family and me. We had almost ten enjoyable years together before her health began to fail. As odd as it seems I can remember certain stages by what medical equipment we had for her.
