The relationship between a mother and daughter is often complicated and frustrating, but almost always comforting and filled with love. Well, eventually.
I wish I could spend Mother's Day with my mom. But even if she were still alive, I probably wouldn't. She lived a six-hour drive from me. (And let's face it--life gets in the way of what we really want to do.) If you think about it, I'm only a heartbeat away from her. (My last heartbeat, of course.) As much as I miss her, I think I'll stick around a little longer. I like to believe my kids need me as much as I need her.
Happy Mother's Day, Mama!
