Happy Mother’s Day mom! This is Lilli, my mom. Isn’t she adorable? This picture is from years ago but it’s my all time favorite picture of her. I think we have a similar smile, don’t you? Although I wasn’t raised by my mom, we have grown very close over the years. We are very much alike and the more I get to know her, the more I understand myself. She’s an awesome mom.
When Tim and I married, timmy (tim jr.) was already 15 years old. I missed the first steps, first words, late night feedings and changing diapers. (I’d like to say I missed the sleepless nights worrying about him but now that he’s in his twenties, I still have plenty of those.) Even though I was late to the party, it was perfect timing, I love being his mom. Every year we grow closer and closer as a family.
Yesterday we celebrated Mother’s Day by placing flowers on my mother in laws gravesite. Naomi, went home to heaven in 2007. We miss her funny laugh and giving heart. I know she is smiling down from heaven on us. Tim Jr joined us there.
I was thrilled he brought me a bouquet of white tulips, a funny card and even sweets in the form of cherry twizzlers.
Tim and I drove home and had a fun movie marathon day, then joined Tim Jr. later that evening for dinner. All in all it was a great Mother’s day.
I hope all of the mothers out there had a great mother’s day too!
