My mother is an angel and this is the fourth Mother’s Day that I celebrate her as an angel. I never imagined living life with an angel mother. I wish I had, for I would have been more thoughtful and deliberate in how I celebrated each Mother’s Day while she was alive.
My mother was born to be a mother. Motherhood meant everything to her. She invested every fiber of her being into her children from the moment each child was born until her last breath of life. I know for I was at the beginning and the end and witness to everything in between.
Mom kept a book, Safeguarding Motherhood, by Sol T. De Lee M.D. It was her guidebook to pregnancy. I recall her referring to the book during my first pregnancy. Saving that book speaks volumes about her loving dedication to her family and the profession of motherhood.
Thank you for taking the time to read about my Mother on this day dedicated to all mothers. I would love to hear something special about your Mother. If you can, please take a moment to share a special memory about your beautiful Mother.
