We've all heard the old saying "you never really miss the water til the well runs dry!" which is such a true statement. During this time of preparation for Easter, I found myself thinking of my mom and the days of old when we were little kids and how my mom would go over and beyond her call of duty to ensure that we all had a wonderful Easter, from the outfits, to the hot pressed hair and bangs she would give all four girls and trim the boys hair, she made sure we had the best she could give. Then she would make sure we had a feast fit for a king and went out of her way to place the colored eggs we dyed the night before in places outside we would not even think of looking but, she'd always give us great clues where to find them.
My mom was the best! As I’m in my kitchen cooking for our Easter dinner I have my grand daughter with me and was thinking how different parents of today are with their kids they miss out on so much, I did the same things with my two daughters as my mom did for us, but the new generation of parents have not a clue what it is to help celebrate with their kids, even though I know the truth about this special day, I still like seeing all the little kiddies all spruced up and looking forward to the egg hunts and eating the ears off the chocolate bunnies lol.
Times have truly changed what I see most is the grandparents taking over ensuring that the babies have the cute little frilly dresses and the patent leather shoes and bows and bonnets, the lace gloves the the cute little purses to hold all their little candies lol. The parents of today are barely dressing their kids and if they do for the most part its in the latest pair of gym shoes and designer jeans and tops! OK so call me old fashion if you must and I also know that this day has nothing to do with the attire of any of us but it was so nice to see the kiddies all dolled up. LOL.
I miss my mom, but I thank her for all she did for us as kids and keeping me with the wonderful legacy of thoughts as to how a mom and grandmom should be for those they love. Thanks mom! R.I.P
