Peter, Dempsey and I wandered into our local Target store, and there it was, hanging like a bright beacon in front of me. A stunning, vibrant orange, ruffled tulle tutu. It transformed my mood as soon as I saw it. I had to buy it. My whole life I always wanted a little girl to dress in a tutu, and here was just the one I needed to help get me through Mother's Day. It looked cheerful and pretty and I knew seeing my beautiful daughter in it would brighten anybody's mood. I had my first weapon ready for the following morning's combat.
Before I went to bed Saturday night I sat outside in the darkness and looked up to the heavens, I wished my Mom, my sister and my aunt a Happy Mothers Day, and I asked Mom for a sign, anything! I watched for a shooting star to streak across the sky, but all I saw was the tiny blinking of an airplane tail.....but wait, what was that I heard. Seeping through our back fence came calming music, that meant something to ME! Our neighbors daughter was practising on her recorder...the song, "Amazing Grace", one that was played at Mom's funeral. I sat there with goosebumps, crying, but also smiling, comforted in my belief it was Mom's Mother's Day gift to me.
I just wanted to reach out wish you a peaceful Mother's Day. I know that this day must be very hard for you, but try to find comfort in the fact that when we relinquish emotions of selfishness and pity, we allow love to flow into and out of our being. Also try to find comfort in knowing that your little angel's spirit is shining brightly above us all, and that little Dempsey's spirit is shining right in front of us on this material earth. Take care of your self today and always. I love you very much, thank you for being my friend.
I hope your day was special and not too difficult and the new week can bring you sunshine in your blue cup! :)
bubby Dempsey and me!
