A Belated Mother’s Day Wish To My Second Mother…

belatedmothersday

Yesterday we celebrated our mothers and everything that they do for us. I hope you all got a chance to see your mothers, and if you are a mother, I hope you were appreciated for all the hard you do.

For many of us, Mother’s Day was a bittersweet day. My mom passed away four years ago. I still think of her and all the times she was there for me growing up. I miss her so much.

But there are other women in our lives that touch our heart and become like a mother to us. That was my Aunt Mabel. She passed away almost twenty years ago but I still miss her. She was five foot tall, and as feisty as they get, but she loved God and truly lived a giving life. She didn’t have a lot of money, but what she did have, she gave generously. Whether it was to my sister and I or a total stranger.

Aunt Mabel, I know you are in heaven, probably stirring things up there.

I’m sure everyone has those women in your lives. They may not be related even, but they have touched us greatly and our lives wouldn’t be as rich without them in it.

Whether you’re a mom, stepmom, grandmother, aunt, or friend, chances are you’ve made a difference in someone’s life and you may not even know it. And I wanted to take this time to that you and wish you all a happy and blessed belated mother’s day, and my prayer is that each of you will realize just how important you are to someone.

Happy Belated Mother’s Day…
