I am loving this “Smiling Campaign”. I hope you are too!
I want to share something that truly makes me smile. I love when I am remembered. Genuinely remembered. I love it when I receive sweet notes in the mail. I love it when I receive phone calls that make me smile and cry happy tears. I love when friends and family drop by to just say “HELLO”. I love being remembered. I love feeling special. Well, tonight, I would like to share with you something that makes my heart fill with warmth and truly brings a smile to my heart.
When I look at the calendar every May, I scan the days and events that are scheduled to take place and my eyes notice one particular day. A day that brings an immediate tear to my eye, a lump in my throat and gloominess to my soul. This particular day is Mother's day. I love my Mom so much and I am grateful to be able to celebrate it her each year but there is that sadness that enters the heart because my greatest desire is to be a mom. A mom who laughs, giggles, teaches, hugs, plays, cheers, reads bedtime stories, cuddles , mends, feeds…and the list goes on and on. Yes, my greatest desire in life is to be a mom. I know that right now in my life, I don’t get to be something that I cherish the most. So, every Mother’s day, my heart hurts just a little, tears fill my eyes just little more frequent and the sadness (even though I try to hide it) stays a little bit longer.
BUT…I have a special friend that remembers me on this particular day. A friend who has the most incredible Christlike characteristics. A friend who has so much tenderness and kindness in her little soul. A friend that I yearn to be more like each and every day. A friend who brings a smile to my face and heart when the smiles are hard to come by.
This Mother’s day, I received the most beautiful gift…actually three gifts from my special friend. A sunflower, diet coke and peanut M&M’s…she truly knows me. Thank you my sweet friend. You truly brought a smile to my heart!! You truly amaze me with your sweetness and kindness. I can’t even describe the way that you make me feel. You truly are a blessing to my heart. I just love you!!
I love to smile when remembering wonderful memories! Don’t you?
