love for my mothers

I am beyond thankful for my mother – we had a wonderful weekend together that ended today when SHE came home and cooked dinner for US on mother’s day! {Although Dad did do the grilling of the steaks =)} We are beyond lucky to have her in our lives. She is dearly loved!

I can’t help but think of the other wonderful “mothers” in my life that I can’t imagine being where I am today without – my grandmothers and my mother-in-law – I am such a blessed woman to have these wonderful examples of loving, caring, courageous, and do-anything-for-their-children kind of examples of what a mother should be in my life. I love you all more than words can express.

This year’s Mother’s Day came with a sting that I had never experienced on this day before. It is a reminder of the wonderful mother and grandmother we so suddenly lost only a couple months ago. My heart is breaking remembering her sweet smile and her funny stories. A piece of my heart went with her on March 4th and our world will never be the same without her.

I’ve been seeing this little poem on facebook this week and I can believe how a few short lines can bring tears to my eyes and lump in my throat so quickly. It’s just another testament to the love we had for this great woman!

If roses grow in Heaven, Lord, please pick a bunch for me.

Place them in my mother’s arms and tell her they’re from me.

Tell her I love her and miss her and when she turns to smile, place a kiss upon her cheek and hold her for a while –

because remembering her is easy, I do it every day -

but there’s an ache within my heart that will never go away. 

We love and miss you more than you’ll ever know, Granny.
