A Mother's Weekend Contemplations

So, here I am, contemplating the beginning of another week. Why does the weekend go by so fast?

This weekend I spent alot of time thinking about how proud I am to be the mom of two very special young women. I reminisced while looking at pictures of little babies with funny faces, a toddler with a mullet (how could I do that to you Brenda?) and eyes so bright and smiles so wide, enough to make any mom's heart melt.

Fast forward a few years and now I anxiously await phone calls and text messages from Bren, as she experiences her first few weeks as a new wife, settling in to a new home, a new state, a new life. I look forward to the end of my work day and start savoring the delicious dinner that Emily has prepared for us. Always healthy, always nourishing, always prepared with love.

Where did the years go? The hotdog man still takes his place at the Corner Room each day, waiting for a mom and her child to patronize his cart after preschool......the library still has their summer reading program. How many books can you read under each category? How many prizes could one win? The toy store is still filled with little ones checking out the latest puzzles, games, legos and who could forget playmobile?......times well spent many years ago.......I was a young mom in a small town, doing what a mom does and loving every minute of it.

It's a little different now, but the "mom" feeling never goes away. I thank God everyday for giving me the opportunity to experience the treasured times with "my girls".

So to Brenda and mean more to me than you will ever know. I thank God.....for you!

Have a great week! Love, Mom
