“I wish my mother had left me something about how she felt growing up? I wish my grandmother had done the same. I wanted my girls to know me.” ~~ Carol Burnett
Today, I’m Thankful for my Mother. She’s gone, but not forgotten. ♥
Sometimes in life we don’t get that second chance to right a wrong. It’s heartbreaking to lose someone or something before
that second chance comes to us. For a few years in my young adult life my mother and I stopped communicating. I rebelled against her wishes. As a result, I stopped learning about her and she stopped learning about me. 😦 Fortunately, I got that second chance to restore our communication, rebuild our relationship and to Thank my Mother for being my mother. Unfortunately, those lost years held knowledge and understanding that my mother and I never shared with one another.
By the time a second chance came I’d already had my own children. They had begun building a happy relationship with their grandmother. All of us were too busy looking ahead to look back. There are still things I wish I knew about my mother and grandmother that I could pass on to my children and grandchildren. Sadly, they both passed away much too soon.
Thank You, Mother!
Who or what are you thankful for today?
