Appreciating the Little things
Mothers day

 VISIT WEBSITE (learn more)

Mothers Day is fast approaching and everyone is scrambling to buy Mothers Day gifts, cards, flowers and what not. I lost my Mother when I was 31. She was everything to my although I rarely told that. She was kind and gentle, and would give her last. She was a beautiful woman inside and out.

As I reflect when Mothers Day came around I would always get her flowers, candy, or a nice gift and tell he I love her very much, and thank her for all she has done for me.

But one thing I will never forget is the day she passed, I would never have that chance again. After the funeral as the family sat around talking about mom, I though to myself, I should have appreciated her more. Gave her more hugs and kisses, spent more time with her.

Then I realized from that moment on, that the little things really do mean a lot. They are more precious than gifts, cards and flowers. Nothing can compare to it.

So reflect on this and use it wisely, and cherish each moment, because when they are gone, it is too late.

To all the Mothers, have a Happy Mothers Day. May God bless you and keep you, and here is a hug, from me to you...

Eric CEO

Beautiful Eric. I can feel your love for your mother coming from your words. Just as I am sure she new you loved her as a son should. I too, remember my mother, standing beside her bedside as she slipped away. She tried to whisper something in my ear, but could not get the words out. I think of that many times, but I feel with all my heart that she was going to confirm as she always did, that she loved me also. God Bless Eric.
