Moms give so much to their families. They care for, encourage, organize, and love their brood. They are often the glue that holds the family together. It’s been 6 years since I lost my mom. I miss her every day. She was awesome, funny, supportive, and loved me no matter what. I can only hope to be as good of a mom as she was. I miss having her in my life.

As I remember my mom with a heart full of love and longing, I treasure her. Isn’t this what Mother’s Day is for? To treasure our moms. On Sunday, May 12, take the time to celebrate and thank the moms and the mother figures in your life. Whether your mom is with you or not, celebrate and honor her. Let her know how much you appreciate her.
