Last Wednesday was my mom's birthday. Like last year, I didn't get around to posting on the actual day. This time, it was because I was with my Navy BFF, whose husband was having surgery that day. Since her two little girls weren't allowed to be in the hospital room, I went along with her to keep the girls company when she went to see him post-op.
I wish I would have been able to spend the day celebrating with my mom, but our current locations make that impossible. Instead, I try to recognize the special times that I miss out on by making what small gestures I can, including blog posts. I hope I made my mom proud by giving my time and moral support to someone who needed it! I'm pretty sure that she would agree that showing the compassion that she instilled in me is more meaningful than a blog post.
I love you Mommy, and I hope that your day was all smiles and peach pie!
