Dear Mom….

I love this picture and have it in a place on my computer that I see it often.

It reminds me of how long we have been together…

I love your smile back then and I still see that full smile today…

I seem to be saying something in this picture, I still have much to say today.

Thank you for being one who listens to me so often.

I would guess we spent a lot of time together back then, and I love the time we spend together now!

I know for many years I was dependent on you. Then the years came when it seemed right to be independent. I am thankful for the season now of being interdependent. I see this season in my life as a true gift for all we share!

Most of all  I so enjoy the relationship we share. The conversation and the laughter, the honesty, the encouragement, the travels to far away lands and the moments of enjoying time right at home, the sharing of life, love, laughter, sorrow, sadness, frustration, joy, delight, mystery, family, friends, hours at the gym or mastering big hills by bike.

As I drove home today I noticed how many people were at the cemetery, and my guess would be they were remembering their mothers. In those moments, my gratitude deepened for the time we have right now. I know that you are not the young woman anymore in the picture above (nor am I), and I am reminded to live each day fully. I am thankful that you continue to deepen your commitment to relationships. I am a different person because of that commitment and I thank you. I love you Mom and look forward to what each day ahead will hold.  Happy Mothers Day!   All my love,   Trish
