I am seriously struggling this Mother's Day. It is officially the morning of and I still can not muster up a gift, a tribute, or idea of what I should do for my mom on the official Mother's Day....
You see in my life right now EVERYDAY is Mother's Day....
Back in 2007 when I was pregnant with my first child, my Mom called me from our hometown Detroit, Michigan and "gently mentioned" she was diagnosed with Stage IV Breast Cancer but she was sure she was going to be okay.
As you can imaging my life changed forever at that moment. I was sure Mom knew sooner than what she told me but did not want to upset me since Dawson was due to make his entry into the world in the next three to four weeks.
I was stuck unable to travel to be close to my favorite girl, as we lived in Woodbridge, VA and Michigan was nine hours away by car and no airline dare let me get on their plane.
Growing up as an only child this really scared me and Dawson too as he ended being two weeks overdue! I could not imagine life without my rock, my foundation....MOM.
During that time I vowed to go above and beyond for my Mom everyday, if God would let her live and beat the ugly disease (cancer).
I am proud to say Mom is still here, a breast cancer survivor! She now resides with us in Woodbridge, Va and everyday is Mother's Day to me.....you only have ONE MOM so celebrate her not just today but everyday!
Now back trying to figure out what to do today....any suggestions?
