She lives too far away to do anything with I did order flowers (roses - her fave) and a personalized card... both I got big discounts/free stuff with, so we BOTH win!! It's tough to get her something 'cuz she never wants anything and her birthday was just a month ago.
Oh and of course I'll call her on Sunday!
Good morning, son
In twenty years from now
Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
And I can tell you 'bout today
And how I picked you up and everything changed
It was pain
Sunny days and rain
I knew you'd feel the same things...
Mother's Day also happens to be my birthday! My daughter and my stepdad are taking me and my mom to brunch at the Mission Inn.
Aww, say Hi to my family for me! It's a tradition to go there every year for Mother's Day and Christmas Eve! I obviosuly can't make it!!!

I love my mom , sometimes its very hard to realize how much you miss someone till they are gone. I wished her a happy birthday and encouraged my daughters to do the same on her birthday. I kind of sometimes stable myself by thinking " what would mom do " when life get tough. She is now a role model to me , when I think I have it rough I think of her as a single mom working in a factory ( sometimes double shifts) to pay for my school tuition and the things a child needs. When I think I wish I had more money I look to the fact that she saved enough money to live independently and make sure all her arrangements where not a burden to me,. When I think wow this grandparent thing is hard rocking a crying baby to sleep at some ungodly hour I remember she took my babies home for the weekend to give me a break after working 40 hrs a week! When I see my grandson and my daughter who is not married but living with his father in total bliss and question hey what the heck..I think of my mom saying " you cant change it , just go with it .." I thank my lucky stars that she lived with us for the last 10 years of her life and watched my girls , they never had to go to daycare.She toured Europe at age 60 , She rocked babies and read to little children in bed at age 70, she had more patience then than I have at 49. Yes we fought , 3 genrations of females in one household with one male omg we argued, we had tantrums,and we loved eachother...all I can say is Hi Mom Happy Mothers Day , you have made us waht we are today , you are my yardstick and motivation when I think I can't do something, THANKS!
