On this special day, when we honor mothers, it also brings to mind grandmothers, aunts, special friends and all the women we have been blessed to love.
My own Mummy has been gone from the earth for seven years now and there's not a day that has gone by when I have not thought of her and missed her.
She was a dedicated, faithful mother who gave many, many years of her life for her five girls.
She taught me so much including appreciating music and the joy of reading, both of which have been great gifts throughout my entire life.
Mummy also remained faithful to God all through the years and taught all of us our prayers when we were little.
Celebrating Mother's Day is forever changed once our Moms go to the other side of life.
It becomes a bittersweet day of remembrance.
Being a mother myself, it makes me think about my own children and now, their beloved spouses.
This Mother's Day will be the first my daughter will celebrate, too. Her beautiful baby girl fills all of our hearts with the purest love imaginable.
I also think of the Blessed Virgin, the mother of God.
She had to witness the brutal death of her beloved son but, no doubt, her heart filled with immense love when He came back to life three days later.
So on this special day, I wish mothers everywhere peace, deep happiness
and amazing love.
Where would this world be without mothers?
