Mother Dearest

>> Wednesday, January 28, 2009

As children, we can't comprehend or fully realize the meaning of a mother's love. How wise she is, how much patience she has, or how much guidance she gives us by her example and by her helpful caring ways. Years go by before we know and understand the depth of her concern and the love in her protectiveness. But as we mature we do finally understand and we can look back and see through older eyes and wiser hearts her unconditional love, devotion, and family loyalty. It's these and many other things that make us realize how lucky we have been and how lucky we are to have this amazing woman - mother, grandmother - as the centered root of strength and love in our life. Tomorrow as my mother under goes triple bypass surgery, I will be reminded of what an amazing person she is and how lucky I am to have her raise me to be the person I am today. I love you Mom.
Today, I looked in the mirror;
Curious as to what I would see.
I expected to see my reflection
Staring back at me.
But as I looked, I saw something more
In the face that was there.
I saw the reflection of my mother;
A woman filled with care.
Each year is another year closer
To looking like my Mother.
I see her in my reflection,
In one way or another.
I may not look like her
But, I reflect her heart so well.
For, it's full of love and kindness;
God's goodness in a nutshell.
Another year closer to looking like mom,
That only makes me glad.
For, I love my beautiful Mother.
She's the best reflection I've ever had

Lump in my throat, tears in my eyes...I am thinking of you all and know that you all are in my prayers. Love you.

She will be in my prayers. Let me know how it goes. I have not seen your mom in a long time, but have always loved her. She will do great.
