All my life all I ever wanted was to be exactly like my mother... I still feel the same way. Always dreamed of all the things we would do together, me as a mom and her as grandma. She was definitely the best grandma to my nieces and nephews, always caring and thinking of everyone first.
I lost my mother 9 days after the girls were born at 27 weeks. In my lifelong plans, it was never an option of her not being there every step of my pregnancy and helping me raise the girls. Sometimes I think that the reason my girls were born premature was for my mom to at least see them, even if it was by pictures or Facetime.
There is not a day that I think of her and what she would do or what she would say. My girls are now 6 and I love that I can have conversations about grandma and how she's an angel in the sky watching over all of us and especially over them When it gets really hard is when they start asking questions of why is grandma not here? why did grandma die? I'm sure that one day they will be able to understand all of this (and who knows, maybe explain to me why this happened ;) )
Celebrate your moms, near or far. Make them feel special, make them feel loved.
Happy Mother's Day to ALL!
This reminds me so much of my own Granny! She was just the best in the world, the best at rocking babies, the best at snuggles and the best at reminding me how strong I really was. I'm sure that your mom is so very proud of the mother you are to your twins and smiles on you everyday!
