My Motherhood

As I write this post today
The tears of joy and some sadness fills my soul
I have been so blessed in my life.
As a young child losing my mother was one of the hardest
Challenges I ever faced. . . . tears filled my pillow at night
Crying for her and feeling such profound lose. . .
I still shed tears because I  miss her so much. .
 I never had the opportunity to share my life with her. .
My childhood was lonely without her.
Throughout my teenage years I was lost without her presence.
When I was a young woman I missed not having her with me
When I graduated, married, gave birth to my babies.
I missed shopping trips, girl talk, friendship, companionship
That only a Mother can give.
 This is the only picture of my Mom and Dad together.
She died when I was 7 years old. . .
Somehow things work out. . . and I have been blessed
To be a Mom
 And this is my Wild Bunch. . .
What a great experience it has been!

All I ever wanted was to be a Wife and a Mom

Even though I no long have my hubby in this life. .
I have my four children. . .
(and now their children)
Mathew, Emily, Blake and Mark. . .
You are my universe, you are the bright shining stars
that fills my life. . .  You are my best friends, and my angels.
Where you are is where I want to be.
I loved being home with you when you were young.
I never aspired to a career outside of my home.
I never wanted the acclaim of the world, , , , I just wanted
My children.
 Nothing in this world
Matters, only you!
You are my Crowning Jewels
And you are mine

  4. What a sweet and touching story. I read somewhere recently that death is a reminder to us to LIVE. And that is really what you have done. You have a lovely family.
