A Mother's Day

Today is Mother's Day.
Today is a day of mixed emotions for me.
I am blessed to be Mommy to two incredible little people. We are one another's universe.
When I was eight, my Mother was a passenger in a car that was hit by a train.
I grew up without her.
And so on this day, when my kids are lavishing me in their love, I feel more like that eight-year-old girl missing her mom than I do a Mother myself.
I am so lonesome and so loved.
Today is a hard day.
Today is a beautiful day.

Thank you for stopping by.
