Some folks will be getting ready for the Southern 500 race in Darlington, some headed to the beach, and others making plans for a family meal together. Regardless of how you spend the weekend, we will all be thinking of our mothers. My mother was a shy, mid westerner, and music major, who fell in love with an army captain in 1945. She left her mother and family, moved thousands of miles away, to settle in Conway SC.
My sisters and I would all probably tell you her most wonderful trait was her totally unselfish and unconditional love. We were truly blessed to have that in our home. She was smart but always let my Dad take the lead. She worked outside the home and took care of the house and children.
I will always miss her but especially when something good happens to the grands and I'm so excited to call her and share it. I'm still let down when I realize shes not there. I hope with all the busy activities of the weekend, we will all take a few minutes to remember our moms. A time set aside to be grateful for all the sacrifices, love and care. And for those of you who are fortunate enough to still have your mothers, give her a special hug, time passes so fast! This is my sisters with me on a recent family gathering. Miss you Moma!
