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
