Mother’s Day 2013

Happy Mother’s Day to all Mom’s

and to my Mom (Diane) and my sister Denise

Happy Mother’s Day to both of you!!

Mother's Day!

We enjoyed an awesome brunch together and spent a lovely afternoon sharing stories.

Yesterday was also a special day with a special celebration…

a surprise 50th Birthday party for my little sister Denise

she turns 50 this week!

Where have the years gone since we were little girls?

My Chidlren

And my two precious kids… Amy & Kyle

who have taught me more than I ever thought that I could ever learn in my life

thank you for having chosen me to be your mother

and for being such great teachers to me

sometimes the lessons have been challenging and harder for me to learn

but all of them, every single one of them have helped me to grow into who I have become today.

You are both the brightest shining LIGHTS in my life

showing me the way!!

I was surprised with this beautiful gift from my husband and our children…

Mother's Day gift

a beautiful Ikea chair for my Reiki room

it would seem that I had written in a blog post that in 2013 I could see such a chair in my Reiki room

I had completely forgotten about it

so this was such a lovely surprise!


And one mother in particular that I thought of often today

is my niece A.

she became a mother for the first time 7 years ago today

she gave birth to a beautiful daughter

a precious and healthy baby girl.

She was the first great-grandchild for my parents.

Today my niece was honouring her daughter’s short life

along with her two young daughters

releasing balloons up to heaven on the day that was to be her birthday

to the sister that her daughters never met

who’s life was way too short

at only 7 weeks of age when she passed suddenly of SIDS.

It won’t be long that the little lilac bush we planted at our home

in her memory

will be in full bloom

every year we see beautiful many lilac blossoms

and always big beautiful yellow butterflies magically appear

as if to tell us

she knows that we remember her

Lilacs planted in memory of my great-niece... blooms every June and always brings the most beautiful and big yellow butterflies!

Lilacs planted in memory of my great-niece… blooms every June and always brings the most beautiful and big yellow butterflies!

To this precious little Angel up in heaven, we miss you

and to my niece A. we love you and think of you often!!

Happy Mother’s Day!!

    I was feeling sad the day before Mother’s Day, missing my mom and remembering the many Mother’s Days I spent with her. Mother’s Day brings blessings, gratitude, sadness but most of all Love!
