Mother’s Day is often a glass half empty – glass half full kind of day. I lost my mom 18 years ago, I was 28 years old. I wasn’t married at the time and I hadn’t started my family yet. So it makes me kind of sad to know that my mom and grandparents will never meet my husband or sons in this lifetime.
When my husband and I got married I was given my mom’s wedding ring to wear from my husband. It is a very special reminder that my mom will always be with me. We are going to be celebrating 15 years this September.
Months ago, on Facebook I saw a set of rings that you could put the names of your children on and I really thought they were simple but elegant. I am not a flashy kind of girl. I had liked them and shared them on my Facebook page.
Now that my husband has finally entered into the world of social media he is connected to my page so he sees what I like and share. (This could come in handy now that I know he is paying attention. My birthday is coming up in a couple of months and I see a hot tub in our future. LOL ) Little did I know at the time that he went ahead and ordered the rings with the names of our sons on them. The only problem was that he didn’t realize until just a couple weeks before Mother’s Day that they hadn’t arrived yet. So they didn’t get here in time for Mother’s Day. But he kept saying that I would like what he ordered and he should at least get credit for ordering them 2 months ahead of time. (LOL)
Well, they arrived just the other day. A few days late but non the less they were worth the wait. I LOVE THEM!
Sometimes, “small moments” come in small packages and a couple of days late. You just have to be willing to be a little patient.
If you feel comfortable sharing a “small moment” or two with me I would love to hear from you.
Here’s to many “small moments ” in your day!!
