The love that a child has for their Mother, or that a Mother feels for her child, is an everlasting and intense emotion! Even after our Mothers have passed that bond is one that can never be completely broken! We will hear her sweet voice offering advice, praise, approval and even scoldings long after she’s gone. Everyone knows the saying, “you don’t know what you’ve got, till it’s gone,” and this is especially true when it comes to Mothers! So many times we take her for granted, assuming that she’ll be there forever, unfortunately, no one lives forever, not even Mom! To my Mother in Heaven, Thank you for loving me and helping me. I miss you dearly. You are always in my heart.
Yes, it’s a Mother’s love and guidance that gives a child the strength and courage to grow into an honorable and caring adult! We should thank our Mothers each and every day, even if it’s in the tiniest ways; a phone call just to say hello, a card or note just because, a visit to sit and talk, or some small token of affection, something as insignificant as a wildflower, will let her know that she’s loved and appreciated in the sweetest way possible! For those of you who understand the grief and sorrow of a Mother’s passing, for those whose Mothers are in Heaven already, a simple prayer offered up will certainly be heard by the one it is meant for!
