So Mother's Day is always a little harder for me. I managed to make it through Sunday with only a few tears. Saturday we had a huge birthday party for my dad. It was really fun to get together with only the adults. My dad's wife made chinese food which was sooooo delicious. Afterward all of us went down to my mom' s grave and gave her some flowers and talked about how wonderful she is. Sunday Josh and I had his family over for dinner. We grilled and played games. It was really nice to have all of them over, and for once Josh's mom got to rest and didn't have to worry about cooking. I just wanted to say how thankful I am for my mother and all she taught me throughout the years. You never realize how important someone is to you until they are gone. I wish everyday I could tell her how wonderful she is, but all I can do is cherish the memories and try to be like her with my children.
