I have mentioned before, my Mother died when she was 60 and I was 34. I did have those wonderful 34 years with her. When I recall, it is only happy, fun times with her. She took very good care of me as a single parent.
We also lived with my Grandmother from the time I was 3 years old, so I actually had two wonderful Mothers while growing up.
I remember one saying my Mother told me, and have actually passed it down to my children, and my oldest said she had already said it to her oldest!
"No matter what you have done or are doing,
I have already been there and done that.
Call me at any hour of the day or night,
and I will be there, no questions asked."
My Mother loved and encouraged me every single day. I learned very early on, that manners, respect and love were lessons for a life.
A mom’s hug lasts long after she lets go.
