Random Five Friday For Mother’s Day

A special “edition” of R5F this week in honor of Mother’s Day.

1.) The reason I celebrate the holiday:

"Call your mother. Tell her you love her. Remember, you're the only person who knows what her heart sounds like from the inside." ~Rachel Wolchin

2.) Tuesday was the 20th anniversary of my mom’s death.  Losing her just a few days before Mother’s Day was especially painful. But, with time, the good memories outweigh the sadness.

"The death of a mother is the first sorrow wept without her".  Unknown

3.) Stretching the Mother’s Day theme with this picture, but she IS a mom, caring for her five little ones.  Papa was just out of the shot.

4.) To celebrate Mother’s Day Sunday, our plans include breakfast with Marshall and lunch with Motor Man’s mom and sisters.

5.) And you know that I’ll have the camera ready for mother/son pictures.

If you still have your mom, I hope you get to spend time with her (or talk with her on the phone) Sunday.  If she’s no longer with you, I know your memories of her will be part of your day.
