Mother's Day takes on a whole new meaning when your Mom is no longer with you. Mom's been gone just over 2 years and this will be my third Mother's Day without her. I was in church this morning with Auntie and the Minister spoke of how when we are young we take our parents for granted. So true. It isn't until we are older (and hopefully wiser) that we truly appreciate all they did for us and the sacrifices they made to raise us. That was my Mom. From the time I was 7 she raised me as a single parent and I can tell you she did not have it easy. But she never let on or complained even though now I wonder how she did it all.
