My Miracle Mother by Joanna Fuchs

‘Mom, I look at you

and see a walking miracle.

Your unfailing love without limit,

your ability to soothe my every hurt,

the way you are on duty, unselfishly,

every hour, every day,

makes me so grateful

that I am yours, and you are mine.

With open arms and open heart,

with enduring patience and inner strength,

you gave so much for me,

sometimes at your expense.

You are my teacher,

my comforter, my encourager,

appreciating all, forgiving all.

Sometimes I took you for granted, Mom,

but I don’t now, and I never will again.

I know that everything I am today

relates to you and your loving care.

I gaze in wonder

as I remember you being you-

my miracle, my mother.’

Happy Mother’s Day mom!  I know you are watching from above.  I miss you and am remembering you on this special day and always.

Happy Birthday Mom!  You would have been 81 years old today.  On this special day, I celebrate you!

Guiding Light Mom

Mom, from the time I was really young,
I realized I had someone…you,
who always cared,
who always protected me,
who was always there for me no matter what.
You taught me right from wrong,
and pushed me to do the right thing,
even when it was hard to do.
You took care of me when I was sick,
and your love helped make me well.
You had rules,
and I learned that when I obeyed them,
my life was simpler, better, richer.
You were and are
the guiding light of my life.
My heart is filled with love for you,
my teacher, my friend, my mother.

I am everything I am today because you loved me.  I miss you and love you always…. “Mother’s hold their children’s hands for a short while, but their hearts forever”

Today I remember….

My mother….

May they rest in peace….

Happy Mother’s Day mom!

Today I celebrate you not only on this special day, but always.  This is the first Mother’s Day without you and I am feeling a bit melancholy.  It was weird not buying you that special card at the card store this year and thinking of a wonderful gift that I could buy you.  It’s so hard not to want to pick up the phone to talk to you and hear your voice.  But I know that you are looking down on me today and reaching down and smiling.  I take comfort knowing that you are always within me, in spirit and in memories.  I carry you within me not only today, but every day and celebrate your life.

Today and always, I thank you for being my mom.  You will never be forgotten.  I love you and miss you.  I take pride that you have molded me in being the mother I am today.  I celebrate you today…my mother, my companion, my rock….

Your mother is always with you…

She’s the whisper of the leaves

as you walk down the street.

She’s the smell of bleach in

your freshly laundered socks.

She’s the cool hand on your

brow when you’re not well.

Your mother lives inside

your laughter. She’s crystallized

in every tear drop…

She’s the place you came from,

your first home.. She’s the map you

follow with every step that you take.

She’s your first love and your first heart

break….and nothing on earth can separate you.

Not time, Not space…

Not even death….

will ever separate you

from your mother….

You carry her inside of you…

Mom in her early 20's

Mom, this blog entry is dedicated to you in honor of your 79th birthday.  As a mother, I now understand the sacrifice, the unconditional love, the selflessness and the patience you gave of yourself for your children.  The past couple of years, you have encountered some hardships that a child never wants to see their parents go through.  Yet, you are a survivor and every day you show me how much a mother’s love and strength can carry her through even through the hardest of times.  You are my inspiration to continue to live my life to the fullest and to never give up in any circumstances.  Your constant love and affection has given me the strength to be my best.

Thank you

To be a mother is not an easy task,

Yet you do it proudly everyday no matter what is asked

You have turned your baby into a beautiful young lady.

You were there for me since the very beginning and saved me countless tears

The pushy and wise advice you gave will carry me through the years.

With my every mistake or wrongful deed,

You were always there to understand.

You put no limits on my dreams or anything else I wish to do.

You never forget to say you care or that you love me too.

The smile and tears upon your face when I achieve provides me with more value

In my heart then you’d ever believe.

There is no other person that will shape my heart the way you’ve done,

Your job finished perfectly for your precious daughters and son.

We have had a rocky road through triumph and catastrophe, hard time and despair,

But not a single moment of time of not having a wonderful mother there.

You have always put in your last with love and my whole life is not enough time for me to repay you.

We always put our disagreements to the side and manage to make it through.

I know that my teen years have driven you crazy but you have guided me with assurance along the way.

You have given me comfort and certainty with every breath I take within the day.

Your little girl is growing up but your baby girl will always remain deep inside me.

There are not enough words that can thank you for everything you have helped me emotionally and physically.

I have my whole future ahead of me and you are the women that has leaded me and guided me towards the proper path.

How can one simple day prove that much thanks and love to someone who has pushed this far and still is working her way?

No other person deserves a more wonderful birthday.

– Devon

May your birthday be filled with joy and celebration!

Happy Birthday Mom!  You are forever loved!

Your loving daughter, Gayle

Some times it is hard to express exactly what you mean to me.  I believe that this poem captures it all:

My Miracle Mother

Mom, I look at you
and see a walking miracle.
Your unfailing love without limit,
your ability to soothe my every hurt,
the way you are on duty, unselfishly,
every hour, every day,
makes me so grateful
that I am yours, and you are mine.
With open arms and open heart,
with enduring patience and inner strength,
you gave so much for me,
sometimes at your expense.
You are my teacher,
my comforter, my encourager,
appreciating all, forgiving all.
Sometimes I took you for granted, Mom,
but I don’t now, and I never will again.
I know that everything I am today
relates to you and your loving care.
I gaze in wonder
as I watch you being you—
my miracle, my mother.

Happy 78th Birthday Mom!  You are cherished and loved always!
