Today is Mother's Day and it has never been an easy day for me.  I am not exactly sure why but it has always been a rather depressing day for me.  Maybe my feelings of shortcomings as a mom, maybe losing my mom ten years ago, the distance between my children and me or even trying to care for Bob's mom, whatever it is I feel a sense of depression.

Our plans today are the same as every Sunday.  Betty will be here and we will play cards and have dinner.  I do have to wash her hair today as I missed Thursday and also wash her bedding.  I don't mind any of just has to be done and it is.

I am worried about my daughter-in-law and her baby to be.  I worry about my son who is a  minister and trying to take care of their other three children and be with Annie all at the same time.  I worry too much and need to trust the Lord.  

I am so very blessed in so many ways.  I have wonderful children, a good husband, good friends and a loving God. So, today I promise to not wallow in depression but will work to be Ruth to my Naomi.  It may be just for today but just for today is good enough!
