A Mother’s Love

Do you remember the first flowers given to you from your children?

In my case …they were lovely bouquets of dandelions chosen so perfectly from the back yard. Those bouquets were the most perfect and the most loved. I remember displaying them on the kitchen table.

I know that my boys understand how much I cherished those flowers and how much I cherish their love today!

I learned so much of how to become a Mother from my Mom and my Mother in Law. They were both devoted to their families with an endless love.

Today I cherish a gift my Mother gave me when both my boys were quite young. The gift of a beautiful heart locket, that was hers, with her initials engraved on it.

She told me to place both my boys pictures in it… and so I did. What a cherished gift from her to me.

Those boys are much older now… men with their very own lives. But they will always be my little boys.

This was taken several years ago …before my Mom passed.

Happy Mother’s Day!

  4. Nancy, what a lovely post. The first flower gifts from your sons will always be sweet memories. The locket made me teary-eyed with sons’ photos. The picture of you and your mom is precious. Happy Mother’s Day my friend💗

      1. Yes she did…..as our girls know….Mothers day is bigger for my wife than her birthday! The advantage she has is that we have three daughters and they all get it even though only one of them is a mother herself! My best to you!!

  5. Such a heartwarming post Nancy. Clearly you had a strong bond with your Mom. I’m sorry that she is no longer with you but I sense she is very present in your heart. XO
