I know that this is one that should be saved for mothers day but maybe i will revisit it then but have you ever thought of what you life would be like without your mother?
I have been given a first hand glimpse and it has not been intentional. My mom has Alzheimer’s and she is not the same.
So my life is not the same. I watched a movie recently and it was not some romantic comedy. I was “Mars needs Moms”….it drove home all the reasons that I love and miss my mother.
I am lucky that she is still physically with me but being that it makes it even more prevalent as to why I miss her and feel this movie.
Think back..It is the holidays..who makes a fuss over you and who makes the house a magical place to be. Well in my home it was my mother and sometimes my aunts helped.
Christmas was full of baking projects and tree decorations. Now it is not that way …I would rather work on Christmas and go to church. Why because all that lead up to the big day was so fun. We went shopping, laughed at silly people for their stress over the perfectness of it, we baked and we enjoyed each other because we were all together for the holidays. We may not see each other on the regular but on the holidays we were going to be all up in each others space. Like it or not my grandparents were going to be there to fuss over unironed sheets and the likes. It was just a moment to take all in. Granted some how I normally ended up sick but then you just got to be surrounded by all that grandparent ah the baby is sick attention (lol good and bad).
My mom is the back bone of my family and probably will be until the day I die. As long as she loves me and is proud of me then the world can kiss it. She holds me to biblical and moral standards and expect the best of me at all time and that is something that I do not feel daunted by but elated by. That she feel that I am hers and that I am worth that responsibility.
Many may not have this feeling or share mine. It is no consequence because this is my opinion and it is how I feel. I have been given that right by my mother to feel how I want and to express how I feel.
Mars needs MOMs and so do the rest of us!
