"Why did you do that?"
When seen in writing, this question reads like a reprimand. But when these words are heard, they can be the epitome of love.
I know, because I hear them today, as I heard them on so many Mother's Days past. My Mother is with me now only in spirit, and yet I still hear that question, and I still see that smile, and I still feel that unconditional love. Memory can be a beautiful thing.
What my Mother was saying to me was, "I wish you hadn't spent all that money that these flowers must have cost".
Truth be told, as happy as she really was with the remembrance, I know that my Mother would have gladly traded those flowers for a little more time spent in her company.
Whether the time spent with your Mother today is in person, or in memory, may it give you a a very happy, and truly blessed Mother's Day feeling.
