The fantastic bouquet of flowers that you see above is Teleflora’s Luxurious Lavender bouquet that is part of their Mother’s Day selection for 2016. This post is a rather emotional post for me, and I am tearing up as I type away at my computer’s keyboard. It is my very first mother’s day without my mother, and just like most children, I thought that my mother would have been around forever. While I knew that it wasn’t realistic, I did hope that my mother would be about much longer. My mother was what you would call a housewife back in those days. She took care of the home and made sure that all 3 of her children were taken care of.
She helped with homework, made sure that we had our meals, all 3 of them (breakfast, lunch, and dinner), we had a roof over our head and clean clothes to wear, she did it all. How she made it all happen, I have no idea, but I do wish that I was half the woman she was. I try my best, but I have to admit that I am still not quite there. I was very close to my mother, and we spoke daily, except for the day that she passed away, and I will always regret not picking up the phone earlier that day, instead of saying, “I’ll give her a call later”. We don’t know how long our parents, in this case, with it being mother’s day, how long our mother’s will be there. One day they’re fine, and the next day they’re gone. Don’t take mother’s for granted and wait until Mother’s Day to make that phone call or send that bouquet of flowers or even say “I love you”.
Being a mother is no small feat, whether you’re a single mom or have a partner to help you. We wipe the tears away, kiss the boo-boos, and a mother’s love knows no bounds. A mother’s job is never complete, and even when the kids are grown up and have moved away, we still worry, because that’s what mothers do. Our job is tough, but it is also fulfilling, and I wouldn’t change being a mother for anything in the world.
This Mother’s Day, Teleflora would like to honor all Moms with flowers because they realize that a mother’s work is never done, we work 24hours a day, 7 days a week on a job that’s incredibly rewarding but also tough. To celebrate, they have designed these gorgeous Mother’s Day bouquets, which are professionally-arranged and hand-delivered by a local florist with love and care to capture the hearts and appreciation of every mother, grandmother, aunt, sister or friend. Here are just a few of my favorites.
