It's happened a week ago but Mother's Day still feels fresh to me, in many different levels. May is an emotional month because I am reminded of my mom so much. She passed away last year, and memories of her are recalled so vividly, and of course, I miss her so much. When she used to be here with us, we both celebrate Mother's Day. But usually, we celebrate her birthday first, she would have been 71 last May 8, and lastly, celebrate their wedding anniversary.
I had a fantastic massage with le hubby the night before. (It was an awesome massage, which I'm going to write about soon.)
Well, this year's celebration was definitely different, because I don't have my mom anymore to greet, treat and surprise. I guess I just have to get used to it. It will take some time, that's what they say. But I say, maybe a looooong time.
Anyway, don't you think that Mother's Day should be celebrated everyday? The world would definitely be a better and happier place! We would be cooking more special meals each day. We would be so energized early in the morning to prepare everything (food, clothes, and clean the shelter,) for the family! We would more patient and more understanding to the kids (and yes that includes the hubby.) But of course, the dads would also appeal to make everyday a Father's Day. Then the grandparents too and the children too, right? So bottomline is, we should treat our loved ones just as how we treat them on their special day.
So, how was your Mother's Day celebration loves? I would love to know!
