    Default Happy Momma's Day to my Mom.

    My mother passed away on April 4th, 1995.
    I loved her deeply; now she's simply gone.
    All my life I'd known that I was loved,
    Living in the circle of her arms.
    I can't believe her love is not somewhere,
    So strong it was, so much a part of me.
    I feel it in the harsh salt of the sea
    And in the stinging sadness of the wind.

    I ride the waves along the rock-strewn shore.
    No one watches me with fear and pride.
    Now among the stars I am alone.
    In her heart I had my only home.


    Written by another, unknown to me.... I just changed the date for me....written so beautifully it says what I feel.



    Happy Mother's Momma. I miss you, I missed you before you were even gone. (My Momma died of terminal cancer) My heart still aches.



    I have Lupus. So *^#@! what.

    Oluwa, So sorry for your loss. That's a beautiful poem.
    But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. Isaiah 40:31

    Take Care,
    Becky

    Oluwa;
    Such a beautiful poem. I can't imagine not having my mom around, I know that this loss must leave an emptiness. Know that you are always in my heart and in my thoughts.
    Happy Mother's day, albeit due to your furry children, especially Pookie whom you say looks most like you (lol).
    I hope that this day is filled with loving memories of you and your Mom.

    Peace and Blessings
    Namaste

    Thank you everyone....hugs...squeeze.

    Oh, I do, I do have wonderful memories of my Mom. Many that cause me to laugh out loud. I feel her in my gestures, my words...and my expressions. Times I feel I am just like her.

    Though I feel like I don't belong to anyone anymore since she left.. it is okay that I feel that...that is love. And I love her.

    She will...would be 75 on May 21...I often wonder what she would look like. More beautiful than the year before. The last time we were together she was 60..and so strikingly beautiful. She wasn't elegant..she was elegance.

    Though I cried my contacts blurry today, when I cry I feel her love..it was, really a wonderful day.

    In her journal she wrote. I love my babies, each and every one. I am one of eight.
    Love,
    Oluwa

    Oluwa;
    I know that so much of your Mother's goodness, sweetness, compassion, understanding, and sense of fairness abounds in you. You are an homage to your Mother and she did a wonderful job with with you because you are such a wonderful, giving person.
    I truly understand the tears that make you feel the love! We are all blessed because you are here and that is a tribute to your Mother!

    Peace and Blessings
    Always

    Olwua,

    I know it's after Mother's Day, but I must agree with Saysusie and Angel Oliver, she lives on in you. That kind sweet spirit that you said you remember, you emulate. And we feel, the care and love that you said she gives. You, my friend, are elegance.

    Default Sending you hugs

    Like your mother loved her babies, each and every one, you too show that love and affection each time you post here to another member in need...as if we are all "your babies." You have a great gift. Your mother, I know, is so proud of you.
