Nothing in life feels as good as a mother’s hug. No matter how old we get, we always have moments when what we long for more than anything is to be able to feel the warmth and love from our mom. Unfortunately for far too many of us that isn’t always possible. Whether separate by thousands of miles or, in my case, by death we can’t always experience the literal embrace of our loved ones. But if you’ve ever doubted that you can FEEL the love without being face to face watch this video.
Nothing feels better than being ‘home’ and I don’t think there’s anything that can make you feel more at home than mom’s cooking. My mom was NOT a great cook. There were plenty of recipes I prayed she’d never try again. But there were certain things, like her split pea soup and her home made spaghetti sauce that I am certain I will never be able to beat. Yet in the moments when I need to ‘feel’ her with me I will make my best effort to create the flavours we shared together. It must be hereditary because I, too, am not a great cook. But I hope that there are a few things that my boys will take with them, that will remind them of me and that will give them the ability to feel my love even when I am not able to be right at their side.
