Mother's Day

Sunday, May 08, 2011

I have a hard time on Mother's Day. I really miss my Mom. I have started to wish others Happy Mother's Day. I wish my sisters, nieces, women at church and friends a happy day. It takes away some of the loneliness of the day. My sister always wishes me a Happy Mother's Day. It makes me feel good, even though I am not technically a Mom. We get a flower at church and today I took it next door and my friend helped me plant it in a pot. I have it outside my door. Snickers likes plant, but he likes to eat them! Needless to say, I don't keep any in my apt.

I am having dinner at my friends apt tonight, so I am saving some calories and fat for then! We are have rotissorie chicken salad. The marinade she is using is lowfat and then it will be on a bed of lettuce. I don't think.it will have much fat, but I am going to enjoy it!!

She is a really good cook and we enjoy eating together. Then we are going to watch a movie on demand. Not sure what yet. We will decide later. Anyway it is nice to have a friend so close.

The weight is back to normal after surgery late day eating and TOM. I feel good and slept 9.5 hours last night!! I woke up feeling refreshed and ready to start my Sunday. Church was good and I only teared up once. Father's Day will be hard again this year, too. Not quite as hard as today...Dad was older and I had a different connection with my Dad.

I walked some yesterday and I usually skip the weekend. I happen to be house sitting and walked down to get their mail. I am healing nicely from surgery and don't need pain pills anymore. I think I took them 2 days. I was glad as then I could drive again!! I do not like to stay home...or should say...have to stay home!!

Well, I should do my dishes and read something good. Have a nice day. Angie

    One of the things that my Mom did on the first Mother's Day after my grandma died was pick a few mothers that she really admired and wrote them each a letter telling them how much she admired them and how they had inspired her. I know Mother's day has passed, but maybe next year that would be a way to honor your mother. Just a thought!

    The fact that you miss your mother this much is a wonderful testament to how much you loved her. You guys were obviously close and that's what every mother would hope for I'm sure.

    Hope you had a Happy Mother's Day. emoticon
