In memory of my mom~ August 30, 2012

Friday, August 31, 2012

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 :-)

    I'm sorry for your loss, i lost my mom last month it was tough because it was a toxic relationship brought on by years of mental and verbal abuse by her towards me. I will tell you what you should do for loved ones in your life , i made boxes of love for my hubby and son ... so if i should ever suddenly die they'll have handwritten notes from me telling them all the wonderful little special things about them i love and some of the things they've done over the years to make me so proud of them...
    I gave it to them one Christmas one year and they loved it, I've added to it since then so it will always be current.... That way they'll always know how you felt , sometimes words aren't as easy to say like you said u think u have all the time in the world and then something happens and words don't get spoken.
    i wish you well, I know the next week or so will be very tough for you, god bless! emoticon

    I'm so sorry that you lost your Mom. It's such a special bond between Mother and daughter. Try to remember all the good times when you start to feel bad. I lost my Mom 11 yrs ago and it is the memories of all the laughs we had together that keep my Dad and I strong. God bless you. I'll remember you and your Mother in my prayers.

    I am so sorry for your loss. There is nothing else I can say that will make you feel better. There will be days you will pluck special memories from your heart & have a smile tug at your lips, there will be times a silent tear will slowly roll down your cheek, there will always be those special times.Take care
