I am eternally grateful, for the life long shadow, that my Mother cast over me. I have heard it said, that a mother/son relationship is one of the closest bonds imaginable.
I know in my case it definitely was. She taught me to ride, and build a bike. We built coaster carts together. She taught me to shoot (safely) competitively, hunt and had a hand in my fishing experiences.
Now, don’t get me wrong, it wasn’t all fun and games; I was on the receiving end of “wait until your father gets home” more than I can recall. And a few times when it couldn't wait for him. 😏
She celebrated the high points in my life; and was a tremendous source of support, during the lowest points.
We have been without her for quite a few years; yet, even now, I can feel her influence in most decisions I make, and actions that I take. Her guidance and example are always in the forefront of my daily life; and I would imagine they will be, for my remaining days.
Although I miss her daily; I still find comfort in her shadow…… Mothers, just keep on doing what you do; and I hope that someday, you will know how much you influenced a life.
We couldn't do it without you.
Happy Mothers Day! 😊
