Happy Mother's Day, a letter to mom!

Dear Mom,
As we celebrate another Mother's Day without you, I remember our last time together, 15 years ago. 
The family all had dinner together at our home on that precious Sunday for Mother's Day.

You left us 4 months later to live in your heavenly home.
While I still know the pain of that sad time, I find great joy in the knowledge you are in a much better place with our Lord and reunited with Dad once again.

Your pink roses planted outside your bedroom window here at my home, are doing beautiful.
 Full and gorgeous just the way you last saw them.
 I remember how much fun I had planting that pretty climber just for you when you came to live with us.  It remains a blessing to me each and everyday as I view the beauty of this hardy vine.

This day as always, seems the perfect time to say thank you for having been in my life, although to short a time.
Your teachings remain with me each and every day as I draw from those learning's in my daily life. Your loving ways, generous heart and gentle spirit will always be alive in my world. 
Always wise and helpful, was just your way. 
On nearly any subject I remember your words as my guide, but most of all, I hold dear your love for God and the example you set for me during my growing years. 
Memories today I keep close in heart and mind.

Thank you for being my mother. I miss you beyond words and I love you forever.

Love, Celestina Marie

Celeste,what a lovely tribute to your Mother! I lost my Mother 25 years ago. Sometimes it seems so long ago and other times just like yesterday! We both have the comfort of knowing our precious Mothers are with our Lord; what a blessing! Sending best wishes your way for a very special Mother's Day!

Beautiful Celeste. I too lost my mom. I was 26 and she only 56. We spent tons of time together. I cherish every memory from childhood and from being adult. She had strength and made me so safe and happy. I am privileged to have as my mom

Your mom sounds like such a dear woman, Celestina. I wish that I could have met her, as I know I'd just love her. The roses you planted for her are beautiful. I know she is smiling down on you and so proud of you. And I'm sure the day will be bittersweet tomorrow. So glad that you shared so many wonderful times together. Wishing you a Happy Mother's Day, my friend!

I am so blessed to still have my mother. She is 81 and battling breast cancer but her outcome looks good since rated stage 2 and on new medication. We talk regularly since live in different states and she is so strong and loving. She has given me so much that has made me the person I am. I am her legacy.
You are your mothers legacy and she would be so proud.

Susie said...

I love your tribute to your mother. It is wonderful you have the rose to remind you of her also. Blessings for a happy mother's day . xoxo,Susie

God bless you this Mother's Day. How sweet that you have your Mom's roses to cheer you. As we grow older, we realize just how much our mothers did for us. It is comforting to know we will see them again in Heaven.
