I lost my mom yesterday. I was with her when she passed. It was the hardest thing I have ever been through. I know she is in a better place but that doesn't ease the ache in my heart. There are many things I wish I had told her and things I wish I could have done differently but it always seemed we had so much time and now the time has passed. If you are reading this and still have your mom in your life...give her an extra hug and tell her how much you love her.
For my mom....I love you and always will.
If there is happiness in my heart,
it's because you helped put it there.
If there is gentleness in my beliefs,
it's because you showed me how to care.
If there is understanding in my thinking,
it's because you shared your wisdom.
If there is a rainbow over my shoulder,
it's because of your outlook and your vision.
If there is a knowledge that I can reach out -
and I really can make some dreams come true -
it's because I learned from the best teacher of all. . .
. . . I learned from you.
Everything I am mom, I learned from you. You helped shape the person I am today and I am grateful I had you in my life as long as I did. Thank you mom :-)
