Serendipity Sundays ~ Your Mother is Always with you

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Realty ~ 512.750.6899

"Your Mother is always with you. She’s the whisper of the leaves as you walk down the street. She’s the smell of certain foods you remember, flowers you pick; the fragrance of life itself.

She’s the cool hand on your brow when you are not feeling well; she’s your breath in the air on a cold winter’s day.

She’s the sound of the rain that lulls you to sleep, colors of the rainbow, she is Christmas morning.

Your mother lives inside your laughter. She’s the place you came from, your first home and she’s the map you follow with each step you take.

She’s your first love, your first friend; even your first enemy but nothing on earth can separate you. Not time…not space…not even death."   3.17.2013

Happy Mother's Day to you, Dorie. My Mother has been gone since 1998 and all the mother figures in my life, as well, for quite a long time now. But I still think of them often and not just on Mother's Day.

To remind me that my mom is always with me; my granddaughter has some of the same facial expressions that my mom had but my granddaughter never met her. Coincidence, I don’t think so Dorie 😇

I don't think so either! Its always amazing how generations always hold characteristics of relatives!

I sure miss my mom.  I lost her in 1975.  Those words in the quote are certainly true.

I can not say that it was all roses growing up with my mother Dorie Dillard Austin TX but she was very good overall. I am thankful for my parents as they gave me great insight how I could be a better parent then they were AND after all I would have hated parenting a kid like me as I was a real terror.
