Celebrating the 50th Blog for Dabillaroundthetable.com. If you were with me from the start one year ago, 50 Roses for Mother’s Day was the first blog I debuted. I am sharing it again since it’s Mother’s Day.
I set a goal to Blog for two years and I made it to my 50th Blog and one year! I am Celebrating and have learned so many things along the way, especially where I lack, what I still need to learn and where I am headed. I hope you have learned and grown along the way.

At the Beginning of the year, I turned 50 and my kids had read my blog and gave me 50 Roses just like we gave my mom in my story below. See Blog on 50 years old and at the top of the hill. We just keep celebrating 50 around here!
First Blog- 50 Roses for Mother’s Day
When my mom turned 50 years old on May 13th it was also Mother’s Day. We thought it called for a great celebration and her five kids gave her a bouquet of fifty long stem roses. My mother was delighted and honored. This is something I have long remembered.
Whether you are a mom or daughter or both on Mother’s day, I want you to enjoy this day and remember.
Every year Mother’s Day will not be the same and will be different in its own unique way. One year I have a mom the next year I don’t. Now I look back to the 50 roses on Mother’s Day/ Birthday and it’s a cherished memory.
As a mom, I look back and all my kids are home doting on me with the help of their dad. A few years later some of my kids are not even home anymore. Soon I will long for their visits.
One day you want your own kids and the next year you are still dreaming of having kids. This day may be hard for you because you wish you were a mom. It may also be difficult for you if you miss your mom or one of your kids.
One year the weather is perfect for outdoor activities and the next year not so much. One year I got the perfect gift; the next year not. One year I didn’t lift a finger and the next year I served others. One year I made my mom in law dinner and the next year she moved south.
Life is full of changes and marches ahead. I enjoy each Mother’s Day as a gift to be treasured, a special day whether it made my expectations or not. I carry memories with me even if it’s not the greatest day and I smile.
I am doubly blessed because I had a great mom and I got to be a mom. I celebrate and am thankful that I had a mom who loved me and raised me to love the Lord and others.
Whether you are a mom or a daughter, always celebrate the moms, mentors, grandmas or influencers that raised you and encouraged you in the past and present. If you can give her a hug and tell her ” I Love You”, do it today because some of us can’t.
I did not know those 50 roses would be one of my greatest memories of my mom on Mother’s Day. Close to eight years later before her 58th Birthday, my mother went to her heavenly home and we laid 50 Roses on her grave in May.-
