My Mom truly was my best friend.  She was my support when I was a child and a teenager.  She was my confidant and adviser when I was an adult – especially as I went through some of my more difficult times.  She was a strong, smart, fun-loving, confident woman that gave me a wonderful example to live by.  

We lost her just over 12 years ago and I still miss her so much.  We used to talk on the phone every single weekend and there are times I still want to pick up the phone to share something fun with her or to seek her advice.  But, I know that she’s in a better place now and finally living pain free.

I want to say that this next part is not original. I found this a few days ago and hung onto it to share with you today. I don’t know who the author is but thought it was lovely.

Your Mother is always with you. She’s the whisper of the leaves as you walk down the street, she’s the smell of certain foods you remember, flowers you pick and perfume that she wore, she’s the cool hand on your brow when you’re not feeling well, she’s your breath in the air on a cold winter’s day. She is the sound of the rain that lulls you to sleep, the colors of a rainbow, she is Christmas morning. Your Mother lives inside your laughter. And she’s crystallized in every tear drop. A mother shows every emotion…happiness, sadness, fear, jealousy, love, hate, anger, helplessness, excitement, joy, sorrow…and all the while, hoping and praying you will only know the good feelings in life. She’s the place you came from, your first home, and she’s the map you follow with every step you take. She’s your first love, your first friend, even your first enemy, but nothing on earth can separate you. Not time, not space…not even death!


“The best and most beautiful things cannot be seen or touched – they must be felt with the heart.” ~Helen Keller~

Mom, you were/are the love of my life and I’ll love and miss always, until we meet again.

“I thank my God for you every time I think of you.”  (Philippians 1:3 GNT)

HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY to all of you Moms today!
