It’s All About Mom…..and Me
My Mom……by Sammy
A little kitten, tiny and alone
No real home to call my own
I was so lonely and felt so lost
I wanted out at any cost
Then came my very lucky day
Some humans adopted me and took me away!
Oh lucky me, at last a home –
I was warm, well fed, no need to roam.
My life has been so full of love.
I’m ever so thankful to God above.
I’m a Mommy’s boy, through and through
AND, yes I’m spoiled, that’s totally true.
My Mom’s the BEST and I’m here to say
Happy Mother’s Day Mom each and every day!
My Mom…..by Pam
One of my fondest memories of my Mom, who passed away in 2001, was when I was a little girl and my Mom and Dad would be getting ready to go to some formal affair at the Officers Club (my Dad was in the Air Force). My Mom would let me lie on her bed and sort through her jewelry box to pick out what she would wear for the night with her gown……..I’d watch her do her hair and make-up and can distinctly remember thinking that my Mom was really a beautiful Fairy Princess and I was ever so lucky to have a Mom who was so beautiful. She would smell so good with her perfume and look so amazing all dressed up………and of course she rarely DID wear the things I’d “picked out” for her from her jewelry box as they weren’t right – but she’d always tell me what good taste I had even while putting on more appropriate jewelry from that “magic box” for the evening’s event. She’d sweep out the door on the arm of my handsome Dad and I imagined them waltzing around the dance floor with all eyes on them. It was a fairy tale come true……..and I totally believed it. I’ve always known that there was a whole lot about my Mom (and my Dad as well) that I never knew….they were both very private people and didn’t talk about their parents or much about their lives growing up. After my Mom died, I found a lot of old letters and photos of people I didn’t recognize and realized there really was so much about her I would have liked to have known. I have a lot of good memories though. While going through her things I found a note that said not to grieve her passing and that she would always be with us (me, my brother and sister) and that her biggest joy in her life had been being our Mom. Now that’s a perfect Mother’s Day memory if ever there was one!
