Y is for Yonder Year


We never know what the future may hold
at the beginning of a new year.

Almost a year ago I wrote about how it might be
the last Mother's Day I spend with my mother.
But, here she is, 
still fighting,
still living,
still going strong.

So one never knows...

All I know is that:
every day has to be treasured
even when she frustrates me to the point of screaming.
every moment has to be enjoyed
even when I get suddenly tearful thinking it might be the last.
every chance I have to tell her I love her has to be used
because I want her always to know that I do.
and,
every second I have to give thanks to God
for just another opportunity to spend with her.
