Happy Mother's Day



I just wanted to pop in today to wish you a Happy Mother's Day and to share this great photo from Bluebellgray, a Scottish textile design company. All of the pretty flowers and beautiful colors instantly made me happy. Not to mention that pretty darn fabulous turquoise desk! I need one just like it!



But more than that, I felt compelled to share these special photos with you guys. I lost my mom to cancer when I was twelve years old, and Mother's Day has never been an easy one for me. Despite all the years, I feel like she is still influencing me today. She was so strong, so filled with spirit, so happy, and such a great mom. I'm so incredibly thankful for that, so thankful for her.

I still miss her every day though...

What wonderful images of a wonderful woman. It's amazing how memories and influences are etched at the youngest of ages.

THank you for the Mother's Day wishes and sweet comments about your own mother. My mother died six years ago, much older than yours, and I too miss her every day. Mother's Day is difficult now-you're so right-but I think the fact we miss them so much shows how much they showed their love for us and that we still feel it. Best to you.

What a beautiful woman. You look like her. I'm sorry for your loss and I'm sure she'd be so proud of you! In fact, I believe she IS so proud of you and is with you every day.

My mom has been gone for 20 years. The older I get, the more she is with me - but now it is joyous, rather than a sense of loss. Today was a pleasant recollection of her life, as I found myself doing quite a few things that she loved to do (spent 6 hours in the garden - aiiiiy! I'm beat!!! :-D but I felt her with me the whole day!!!

Hoping in time your memories bring you only joy, Erin! xxoxoxoA

Yes, I understand how hard Mothers Day must be. I think we always need our moms no matter how old we are. She was a lovely lady and I am sure she influenced your life with just those short years. A blessed day for you

Oh Erin! It brought tears to my eyes when I read about your mom. I was blessed to be able to spend Mothers' Day with my daughter yesterday, who just turned 13 - and it hurts to think of you losing your mother at such a young age. I am so sorry! Wherever she is, she must be very proud of you!

Such a sweet post, Erin! Your mom was beautiful, and you look so much like her! that hammock shot makes me think of my grandparents...they had the same one and I have so many pics of us in it together. :)

I'm in the same boat - I lost both parents to cancer, Dad at 16, Mom at 21. She passed away a month before my wedding. I'm sure though that it must've been harder to lose a Mom at only twelve. At least we have the memories.

Hi Erin, thank you for sharing your story and photos with all of us in the blog universe. I share with you the love of Turquoise and also being an orphan shattered by Cancer. My Dad died when I was fourteen and this past April marked 28 years since his passing. My Mom was 58 the year he died and she soldiered on maintaining a normal household for me while I struggled through the grief, anger, hurt and depression mixed with raging teenage hormones never once giving a second thought to her and her emotional state in those years. Somehow we both survived and after attending College I moved away when I was 20. My Mother died 14 years after my Dad, losing her battle with Cancer but in my mind she won. She is with her true love and both of them are watching over me and I am so blessed to be their child.
So next year on Mother's Day post more photos of you with your Mom as I am sure she is beaming with pride.
