Some people can inspire you just by their presence. It’s not so much what they do, although they do quite a lot. It’s more about how who they are comes through in everything they do.
My mom is one of those kinds of people. She is young at heart and I think that’s why I never feel any older, either. She just turned 85 a couple of days ago and sure she has some aches and pains that come with aging, but…
…she still loves to go out to restaurants for lunch. And nothing is up her alley more than a good old all day long shopping trip. She still drives and you won’t find her sitting around the house if it’s a beautiful sunshiny day out like today.
I’ve learned unconditional love from her. And how to enjoy life. One of her favorite sayings is,” You never know what a day may bring.” And, of course, she’s referring to something good happening because that’s just how her mind works.
I’m thankful to have had a happy childhood and a mother who loved me and showed me that life can be fun. Lessons like that can carry you through the inevitable bad times you go through in life.
When you’ve grown up being VISIBLE to someone, it makes it easier to remember that you matter.
So this is just a short post to honor my mom. And to give you a little background about where my positive “I Love My Lemonade Life!” philosophy comes from. I couldn’t have ended up any other way with a mom like mine.
Happy Mother’s Day, Momma!
