There is no bigger delight than to have two little arms wrapped around your neck, a soft cheek pressed hard against your face, with an accompanying squeeze that is meant to be gigantic and is in the feel of it, but in presentation is the smallest of wonders. Accompanying that squeeze are the words. "I love you mommy." Mothers who now sit in wheelchairs in nursing homes can pull on that memory of love, and remember it as if it were yesterday.
I have been blessed to say that in the world of creativity I have created what some would consider to be a masterpiece or two. But, by far, my biggest contribution to the creativity and my legacy are my children. Along with those living masterpieces there have been some pretty spectacular chalk art masterpieces authored by mom and child.
As a child, Mother's day brings memories of making gifts for mom. Handprints in plaster, beautiful hand drawn cards, sachets, and elaborate bath crystals that were really just Epsom salts mixed with food coloring and put in a baby jars uniquely decorated by little hands. As a child, a Mother's day focused on my own mother until becoming a mother myself. Though I also loved celebrating my mom, because now I new intimately the mother/child bond from another perspective, I'm sad to say that often my long distance mother was lost in the hubbub of my own family celebrations.
My mother tells me you are always close with your mother. She gets dreamy as she thinks back to the love of Grandma Sugar, who has now passed away. The thought of not having my mother on this earth is unimaginable to me. As mom talks about Grandma Sugar I wondering if she remembers her own wrinkled and frail arms that were once young and plump with baby fat as they hugged her mothers young neck. Children and motherhood are a blessing. For all of the mothers out there blessings to you as you feel or remember, " I love you mommy."
Psalm 113:9 He honors the childless wife in her home, he makes her happy by giving her children.
