My mom passed in 2010...still hurts so much and DH's mom passed in 2005. I can't lie, it's a bittersweet day for both of us, but we try to remember how much they meant to us and made us who we are. Abraham Lincoln said, "Everything I am or ever will be I owe to my angel mother."
Our three children will have brunch and spend the day with us and that will keep the day happy since we now have our little grandson to remind us that life goes on!
“Our hearts grow tender with childhood memories and love of kindred, and we are better throughout the year for having, in spirit, become a child again at Christmas-time.”
― Laura Ingalls Wilder
