The Best Mother's Day ever!

I don't know where to begin. This has been the most memorable mother's day/birthday for me. My birthday was earlier in the week, and mother's day is May 9. My children wanted to make this one special event, and they certainly did.

It is hard to realize what it meant to have all my children together, when you have no knowledge of the way they have been for several years; not speaking, shunning one another, missing special events and holidays, getting angry when I would bring up the other ones name... It had gotten to the point where I was afraid to be disowned also.

It has been really difficult for those of us who were not feuding, and I imagine difficult for those who were. People are only human, after all. We make mistakes. There was never any intention to hurt or harm. It just happened, and we suffered. Our hearts ached and we longed for what once was, however the "injured" parties were not ready to let go and move on.

Baby boy, Chris, the one who went to Puerto Rico to meet his father, the one with the long sleeved button up shirt, was mediating. I was talking to all of them individually trying to mend fences. He was too. Unbeknownst  to me, he invited them all over to his place last week to watch pay per view. They all showed up. Was the ice melting? No one promised anything, but my oldest son called on my birthday and said he wanted everyone to meet at the bowling alley on him. I quickly made the calls. I am grateful to have children that love me enough to do as I ask, even when they are a little leery.

Chris and Ant were shooting back and forth one liners like pros and I was laughing harder than I laughed at Comedy Central, when I last went. When I looked around, I was not alone. The brothers challenged each other to push ups, with a personal wager between the two of them. The competition was fun loving and funny.
They had all of our bowling styles down pat and was glad to demonstrate for us, even going as far as launching the ball like I do or cleaning the gutter like ____ did. (We must protect the innocent.)

Everyone was laughing and having a wonderful time! It was great. If I had died last night, I would have died happily and in peace. My children were again my children and each others siblings, and not strangers that did not know one another. After we left the alley, they planned a night of cards. Mom (me) went home stiff and sore but ecstatic. After all I had not bowled in ten years, and these muscles have spent far too many hours lately sitting in front of a computer. I've vowed to get out and bowl more often.  I'm not waiting for an invitation this time.

I hope your Mother's day is very special. As for me, I don't know how mine could have been any better. Take care and God bless!

This will became a memorable day for you, sister!

It's always important for family members to get together during a special occasion, but most importantly they should all share love, caring and thought towards their family members.

Chan, I could not be happier. I am on cloud nine.

Have a blessed day with Mum on mother's day.

Many more happy moments and memory like this to come..Have a wonderful Mother's day today..

Icy, thanks, I couldn't be happier right now - a little less stiff maybe. :-)

Have a blessed and happy day!

Oh Judy, I am glad that you had a blast celebrating Mother's Day and your birthday. I am happy that you had a wonderful time my friend. Belated Happy Birthday and Happy Mother's Day to you. Take care.

Judy Sheldon-Walker May 9, 2010 at 1:04 PM  

Ruthi, it's wonderful that my children are all speaking again. I am so happy!

I hope your day is blessed. I know you have much to be grateful for, to reflect upon and to mourn. I hope you find comfort and peace today.

I think that is so great that you had the chance to spend the day with your children especially since that is a rarity for you all to be together. Maybe this is the start of many more reunions. I hope you had a great Mother's Day, Judy.

Judy Sheldon-Walker May 11, 2010 at 8:59 PM  

CA, It could not have been any better!! I hope your day was wonderful also.

Take care & God bless!

Happy Belated Mother's Day. Is that why everyone is so quiet? I think you deserve the best Judy.

Judy Sheldon-Walker May 14, 2010 at 7:33 AM  

S.S., quiet, we were not! We had a blast. The people two lanes down remarked and my son told them we weren't in a library. hehe
