Mother's Day 2010

This is how this beautiful day started...
Couldn't have been more perfect!



Yes, I sure am one lucky, lucky mama :)


Nothing beats blowing bubbles in the backyard on a beautiful day!



10 years ago, I spent Mother's Day in the hospital with my mom . I'll never forget it and it feels as though it was just yesterday. She was in a coma and we had to choose if this was the day for her to go up to heaven. I remember thinking "NO, not on Mother's Day" how could I ever celebrate that day again when I became a mom. It just didn't seem fair or right. God has his own way of doing things and my sweet mama passed away 2 short months later. I am soooo blessed to be a mom to Tatianna and know my mom is our guardian angel. My sister shared this poem today & I thought it said exactly what I was feeling:


If roses grow in heaven, Lord pick a bunch for me~Place them in my Mother's arms and tell her there're from me~ Tell her that I love and miss her, and when she turns to smile~ place a kiss upon her cheek and hold her for a while~ Because remembering her is easy, I do it every day~ There's an ache inside my heart that will never go away.
