Bittersweet Celebration

Today would have been my parents “50th” wedding anniversary. I spent yesterday with my dad, we had a great day together. We both miss mom and though we don’t discuss our missing her often, we know just by looking at each other and see our hearts. I had always dreamed of celebrating “Their” day with a surprise party filled with family. I would still recommend planning things as a good and noble thing to do but don’t wait to say and show your love and appreciation for only special occasions, I hugged and kissed my mom before saying goodbye at the end of our phone conversations and visits. I do wish we could have had more time but the time we did had, I tried always to show and tell her how much I loved her, she was my mom and she will always be within my heart. There’s special bonds with mothers and daughters as well as dads and daughters. I am so fortunate that I am able to still be daddy’s little girl but also his friend. Family unites us, sorrows connects us and God holds us and protects us with His everlasting love.

Deuteronomy 31:6
Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”
