Do You Remember?

Saturday, May 11, 2013

Dear Mom:
Remember those days when together we would cook,
Or when we shared the latest mystery book?
We'd watch a game show or play a board game,
It‘s a shame that things don‘t stay the same.

We laughed a lot, and shed some tears too.
We’ve had our ups and downs, as mothers and daughters often do,
But through it all, you’ve been there for me,
I hope I haven’t failed you - that someday you’ll see.

I treasure that you're still with me, even though you can't remember,
In your eyes I still can see, love - like a glowing ember.

So I write this to thank you for your loving ways,
May the Lord protect and comfort you for the rest of your days.

    When the end of life came to my Mother she didn't remember who I was or anything about our life together. It was so sad but I loved her enough for both of us! emoticon Your blog is beautiful. Thank you for sharing it with us.
Love and prayers to you both. emoticon

    This brings tears to my eyes. You know, the one belief as a Mom myself that I hold onto is even without being able to say so our Mom's love us . . . unconditionally! My Mom has Alzheimer's and her short term memory is extremely poor but am grateful that she is still able to know who I am and carry on a shot conversation. It's so hard when our Mom's get ill.

HUGS. I hope you have a blessed other's Day.

my own Mother has been gone 8 years last weekend. Not a day goes by that I don't think about her. Hope you and your Mom both have a blessed Mother's day.

    Julia, this is such a beautiful poem to your mother. I could write pages, for the emotions it brought within my heart. With tears in my eyes, to our dear and wonderful mothers, I shout "Bravo!"

Happy Mothers Day to you, my friend. emoticon
