"Your Father Remembers"

Sunday, Mother's Day, has come and gone.  It always seems to be this inflated holiday that never quite lives up to all the hype that surrounds it.  I have learned to tame the hype in my head.  I have learned that life does not always bring a big party for Mother's Day or any day for that matter.  The real problem I have now is not that I want a big party or have any high expectation for my husband or kids, rather I have this desire for everyone to remember and recognize that I am missing Charlie.  After all, he is one of my babies.  He is my third baby.  He is one of the reasons I am a mom; the reason I get to celebrate Mother's day in such a special and unique way.    

So this weekend I had one sweet dear friend from college write me a quick note on Facebook that said, "...missing Charlie with you."  My heart burst open and I was suddenly overwhelmed by that note.  My heart was happy and my head was full of memories of my boy that were released when I knew someone missed him with me.  I told her thank you for thinking of him and I briefly explained that some days I feel like I am the only one that remembers him.  In as simple a response as she sent the first time she said, "...your Father will never forget."  It was then that I stopped and brought it all before my Heavenly Father and said, "Remember with me God."

It was another Mother's Day without one of my babies but I was happy to remember all the memories I have of him with my Heavenly Father.  I was happy to get time with someone that knows the deepest, darkest parts of my heart.  It was the perfect end to my Mother's Day.  It was a good day.
