Moms just somehow seem to have the power to make everything right in their children’s world. Even if as an adult we realize that isn’t reality, there are still times when there is nothing like a mother’s love to make everything seem alright once again. I wish my mom could do so for me today. I’m 42 years old and my mom past away 18 months ago, but yet I would give anything in the world to be able to pick up the phone and hear my mom’s voice. I’m not sure why today I feel this overwhelming sense of loss and loneliness, but I just know that I do.
Mom if you were here I know you would talk to me or give me a hug and reassure me that everything will get better. It just seems that whatever I try to do today doesn’t turn out right no matter what it is that I’m attempting to accomplish. I’m feeling very frustrated, stressed out and overwhelmed. What I wouldn’t give for one of those hugs today. No one loves like a mother does.
I miss you every single day mom, but there are just some days, like today, that that sense of loss is overpowering. Then I just have to see the pretty flowers of spring or a hummingbird and I’m reminded that you are still with me in spirit and that you will always be so. Thanks mom for all the love you gave me in my life. Know that you were, and still are, a great mom. I will forever carry your love and memories of you inside my heart. No one will ever take your place in my life. Like I said earlier, no one loves like a mother does, so don’t ever take it for granted.
