Hope everyone had a nice Mother’s Day. Typically, about this time on Mother’s Day I’d be stretched out on the couch at my Mom and Dad’s place after a nice dinner. My Mom would have placed my bouquet of flowers in her vase and we’d be getting ready to watch America’s Funniest Home Videos.
Not this year, though, or the past five.
She passed away in the summer of 2004, sadly. At least she went quietly in her sleep. But I still think of her every Mother’s Day — pretty much every day, for that matter. We were very close, me being an only child, so her passing hit home very hard. I miss her very much.
As for the above photo, I took that a while back during an outing with Mauro.
So if your mother is still with us, it’s not a bad idea to remember there will come a day when she will be gone. It doesn’t cost you anything to show her how much you love her and you won’t have any regrets when that day comes.
The couple in the black and white shot are my Mom and Dad, proud new working class parents living in the west end of Toronto. I’ll give you three guesses who is in that little baby carriage. 😉
