2015, I started my blog on the 13th, so I missed Mother’s Day because it was on the 10th of that year.
2016, my post ‘about you, moms!‘, was dedicated to you the moms who follow my blog.
2017, I dedicate this special day to my mom. I have written many posts about her and the importance of her is my life. To recognize her for just one day is not enough.
I wrote in last year’s Mother’s Day post –
I have written several posts about my mom and her importance in my life. You can read more about her in these posts ‘Thanks Mom!‘, ‘Magnificent‘ and ‘Happy Birthday Mom‘. She also has been mentioned in other posts as she was my main support during my years of major depression. She is important to me and I truly think she is the best mom in the world!
Since last year’s Mother’s Day post, I have also wrote this post about my mom ‘My mom, she worries‘.
My mom does worry as I think most moms do about their children. She knows I am sick with a disease that is significant. And at times on our phone conversations she will cry, I do not want her to, but she does. I know I am important to her just as much as she is important to me.
But, 2 days ago, this past Friday, it was my turn to cry. I called my mom because I needed her. The pain level was high that day and I was having difficulty dealing with it and being optimistic about the future. I cried on the phone to my mom and told her I was feeling tired and weak and worn down. I don’t know how I was going to continue on. I was showing my weakness to my mom and I told her I always want to show strength in dealing with my cancer and the affects it is having on my body.
She told me no one can bear this much weight without showing some weakness every once in a while. She said to let it out, let go of the frustrations and worries. As I cried, I felt comfort in her words, my mom’s words have helped me many times in my life, her words, her love; they provide me something that no one else can give me. That is my mom, my biggest supporter and encourager; she has always helped me during difficult times in my life as she continues to do so today.
Happy Mother’s Day Mom!
